Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Kailan Kichi is also known as Chinese Broccoli or Kale. It is one of the easiest & quickest of the brassicas to grow and is ready to eat in as little as 2 months.
Kailan Kichi looks like an unruly sprouting broccoli. It's thick stems, leaves and flowering sprout are all edible. It is best eaten when the flowering part is just beginning to flower and can be lightly steamed or used in stir-fries. The thick stems will take a little longer to steam and the baby leaves can be used young in salads.
Kailan grows to approx 40cm and will re-grow if the stems are cut down to about 7cm from the base. A useful cut & come again veg that will crop a number of times throughout the season. It will die down in winter and should re-grow if the weather has not been to severe but as it is easy to grow it is generally used like an annual.
A great addition to the veg patch and thought to be of equal standing to asparagus & sprouting broccoli.
