Asian Greens – Mizuna


A mild mustard green sweet enough for salads. The thin, light green, feathery leaves are deeply cut, but not curled. Plants grow vigorously with upright growth up to 31 cm (12″) tall. Cut and come again throughout the season or pick individual leaves. Heat and cold tolerant; will grow in shady conditions. Also known as kyona and shui cai. Cook the older leaves like spinach, or use the young, tender leaves raw on sandwiches and in salads.

Botanical name
Brassica rapa nipposinica or japonica


9 per square foot in 3 rows of 3

Plant seeds 1 cm (½”) deep.

Best in full sun, but can handle a bit of shade. pH around 6-6.5.

Seeds will sprout in 7-14 days.

Slugs may nibble young seedlings. Keep the garden free from debris, where these pests like to go during the day. Protect plants from flea beetles and cabbage moths with lightweight row cover, or insect netting.

Direct sow starting in mid-April. Cool-weather crop. Best soil temperature is 10-15°C (50-59°F) . Bok choy likes it under 18°C (65°F) so is best for spring and fall plantings. Transplanting is not recommended because the seedlings usually go into shock and do not grow well.

Thin seeds to one per spot. Very low-maintenance vegetable. Does not like the heat, so grow early in the spring, or as a late fall addition.
