Granaat, organic seeds
Brassica rapa var. pekinensis
Is one of the few openly pollinated sorts remaining in trade. Its head is the classic, tall and cylindrical one which was common before the compact hybrids cornered the market. G. grows 30-40 cm tall with shiny, green outer leaves with a broad white nerve down the centre which surround a dense, crispy, yellow-green interior. Granaat grows quickly and should not be sown until mid July because of the risk of bolters. It can handle a few nights of frost but should thaw out completely before harvest. A portion contains about 100 seeds.
