Benefits

The potential health benefits of tatsoi come from the plant’s antioxidant and micronutrient content. Called “vitamin green,” it’s one of the top food sources of vitamin C and vitamin A.

  1. Rich in Vitamin C

Tatsoi offers more vitamin C than oranges, papaya and spinach. These greens are packed with disease-fighting antioxidants that minimize oxidative stress and damage to your cells.

Research shows that eating vitamin C foods may be associated with a lower risk of many chronic conditions, including heart disease, stroke and cancer. Getting plenty of vitamin C is also known to increase longevity.

  1. Excellent Source of Vitamin A

Asian greens are an excellent source of vitamin A, a nutrient that plays an important role in many body functions. Vitamin A helps maintain strong bones, healthy skin and a strong immune system.

It’s also critical for vision support and has been shown to help in the prevention of macular degeneration.

  1. Provides Folate

Want to promote brain, heart and bone health? Make sure you get enough folic acid foods in your diet. Adding tatsoi is a great way to boost folate levels, which support strong bones, cognitive function and even a healthy pregnancy.

Studies indicate that high folate intake is associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease and may help boost brain function for elderly adults experiencing cognitive decline.

  1. Features Glucosinolates

Glucosinolates are compounds found in cruciferous vegetables. They give greens their bitter taste and have been researched for their protective benefits against heart disease, cancer and more.

Research suggests that glucosinolates have anti-carcinogenic effects and may reduce the risk of certain cancers, including breast, kidney and esophageal cancers.

  1. Improves Heart Health

Asian greens are packed with heart-healthy nutrients, including antioxidants and calcium. Adding these greens into your diet can help boost heart health by relaxing smooth muscle tissues in your arteries and helping prevent blood clotting.

Growth and planting

Tatsoi greens can be planted in the spring for a summer harvest or in the late summer for fall harvest. They grow quickly, in about 20 days, and make an excellent addition to your home vegetable garden.

If you plan to plant it in the spring, opt for full-grown tatsoi instead of seedlings, which would be more vulnerable in cold temperatures.

The best growing conditions for mustard spinach include:

Plant tatsoi in an area that gets three to four hours of sun each day.

Use well-draining soil.

Water the greens regularly.

Ideal temperatures for growing these greens are between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit = 15:22 Celsius degree

Harvest

Harvesting the leaves is simple. You can start cutting leaves when they are about four inches long. To cut the whole head of the plant, leave about one inch above the ground so it re-sprouts.
