Choy sum grows like a weed here in Central Florida. It has won in the contest against kai lan (Chinese broccoli). I will only grow choy sum from now on, especially since I will have a billion seeds!
We have been busy harvesting the very tiny seeds. I’m also sure it’s going to drop a million seeds in the garden and grow like a weed. I’m actually pretty excited about that and okay with it!
Anyways, all one has to do is wait until the seed pods start to rattle in the wind and then it’s time to harvest! A little tedious, but well worth the collection.
Choy sum makes a great substitute for Chinese broccoli and is cooked in very similar ways.
Here is a picture of many seeds in the bottom of a mug…they are SOO tiny!
