    This beetroot was used during the winter months of the 1800’s as animal feed. The dull red beetroots, with their pale white flesh can be dug up when small for household use, as both the roots and the leaves are edible. The roots are deliciously tender when they are harvested very young and the leaves can also be used as Swiss chard while the root is still growing, up to a third of the leaves can be picked without causing damage to the root or plant.

  • Black Knight Tatsoi

    R26.00

    Brassica narinosa

    Tatsoi is native to China and are considered an ancient Asian green. It is a small, low growing plant with spoon-shaped leaves. Like all Chinese brassicas, Tatsoi germinate and grows quickly which means multiple harvests can be had from a single plant.
    It thrives in fertile nitrogen-rich soil, but with good composting, will adapt to loamy and sandy soils. Watering regularly is critical to good growth.
    Tatsoi tolerate cold better than heat and grows best if sown in late summer to autumn. It is hardy to frost.
    Tatsoi is generally disease free, but pests like slugs and insects love the tender leaves. Cabbage worms, cabbage loppers and flea beetles can riddle the leaves with holes during spring.
    Companion plants: Beetroot, carrot, peas and other greens like mustard, kale, mizuna, spinach and marjoram.
