Asian Greens - Growing and Seed Saving Information
Seed depth: ¼”. For baby leaf- Seeding rate: ~60 seeds/ft in a 2-4”; Row
spacing: 2/3” between bands. Harvest when leaves are ~3” tall by
cutting 1” from ground or pick individual leaves for cut and come again.

Most Asian Greens are moderately hardy annuals and can be sown from
early spring through midsummer. Asian greens are in the same family as
mustards but tend to have a mild flavor and lack the spiciness that many
mustards are known for. Asian greens include an assortment of species
that can be grown for baby leaf or full size crops.

SEED SAVING INSTRUCTIONS
Insect pollinated. Different varieties of the same
species must be isolated by a ¼ mile from each other to prevent cross
pollination. Physical barriers such as tree lines, woods or buildings
may make shorter isolation distances possible. Allow plants to bolt and
flower. Staking may be required. Harvest individual pods or stalks as
they begin to dry. Seed can easily be lost due to shattering so harvest
into bags or onto a tarp while they are still damp with dew in the
morning. Use a 1/8" screen to help with cleaning. Seeds will remain
viable for 5 years under cool and dry storage conditions.
