How To Grow Asian Greens In Your Garden

Brassica rapa var. pekinensis synoniemen: Brassica pekinensis, Brassica campestris Nikko

We may all be familiar with Asian greens from eating in restaurants, but we don’t often grow them in our gardens. They are members of the brassica family, along with broccoli, cabbage and kale. Most are grown for their leaves, which makes them easier to grow than brassicas grown for their flower buds. Most are very quick growing, particularly during the cooler seasons. You can usually get at least 2 plantings per year and some can be succession planted, for a longer season. They can be planted densely and thinned and eaten as they grow. Most can be harvested as cut-and-come-again greens. How can you grow various kinds of them? Head over to gardening.about.com to find out!
