Yukina

Winter in the garden means that we have a lot of "greens"....  broccoli, kale, winter lettuces and plenty of beet tops, silver beet and even mangel worzel this year.  But one that is very productive and becoming a favourite is Yukina (Brassica juncea).
It grows easily and very fast.  It needs to be thinned as it grows, and these "thinnings" are all good to eat of course.
I first knew it as "Asian greens"  and bought a few "Asian greens" seeds that turned out to be Yukina.
