This is the most bitter vegetable that I have ever tasted! It even overtakes the bitter gourd! I bought the seeds by mistake, thinking that it was parsley. Only upon planting the seeds, then did I realize that I have bought the wrong seeds. Well, I planted it anyway. I have not seen this variety of mustard greens before, the ones that I usually buy from the market have really huge stamps and thick big leaves, which have a slight bitter and pungent taste, but not as bitter as this!
Harvested this and a few more, as the stems are getting old and tough.
The flowers are pretty, though, similar to "choy sum"
Why do most vegetables have yellow flower??
Ready for my wok!
The packet of seeds
I stir-fry the kai choy with garlic and I'm the only one who ate this! My kids and hubby took a bite and did not touch this dish again! It was SO BITTER, I didn't even finish it. When I search the web about this veggie, it was mentioned that to get rid of the bitter taste, boil it in salted water for a few minutes. But I think that it won't make much difference!
