Description: A colourful Tatsoi that heralds from right here in Canada, bred by Dan Brisebois of Tourne-Sol Cooperative Farm near Montreal. The dark green leaves of this gorgeous tatsoi are splashed with purple, red and pink; and the stems are pink. The mild flavour of the leaves is ideal for salads but can also be craised and sautéed.
