Chinese Kale Kailaan
Chinese Kale or Kailaan as it is known, is a chinese broccoli which would make for an interesting substitute to standard brocolli with your dinner. It is slightly tangier in flavour than regular broccoli. This is a white flowered variety and the name is Cantonese for Chinese Kale. The flowers, leaves and stem can be eaten but the stem usually needs the skin peeled off. It is fast growing, approximately 60 days from transplanting and can be sown all through the growing season. It is grown in a similar way to Chinese Cabbage but needs less space in between.
The interest in what we have classed liberally as "Oriental Vegetables" increases every year. They can be used raw in salads, or lightly cooked for use in stir frys and numerous Chinese style meals. We hope you will be tempted to give something different a try.
