Crop of the week

Each week we celebrate one of our favorite crops and offer the seeds at 15% off the usual price. 

This week we are celebrating oriental greens. We love the seemingly infinite diversity in these spicy winter salad leaves. Different varieties cross very easily together so there are constantly new varieties being bred. They are equally delicious raw or cooked (preferably stir-fried), and they get spicier as the weeks go by – by March some have wasabi-esque heat levels. Our favourite (a difficult choice) is Tatsoi, it is smoother tasting than some others with an almost buttery texture.
