Brassica rapa var. chinensis
A new beauty among the Asian leaf-cabbages with deliciously pink stems and leaf-nerves. The green varies from a fresh light-green to a deeper green with lilac edges. The taste is of mild cabbage with some bite. The plant stands grandly upright, about 45 cm and yields a good harvest. Pink Lettucy is slow to bloom and yields its best crop during late summer and autumn. It tolerates several frosty nights during late autumn. A portion contains about 300 seeds. MOFGA-certified seed. See under Info etc. - Ecologically grown seeds.
