hi. i grew tatsoi this past spring and it was wonderful. i would like to grow it again but i had many reasons why it was not worth it - after i cut the leaves it never regrew so i pulled it. it took 45 days to get just a few leaves off 6 or 8 plants. i figured it was not worth growing as it takes too long if it is just a 1 time crop because it's too late and hot to use that space.
so is tatsoi a cut and come again green?
i read here that i should leave 1/3 of the leaves and not cut all. is that correct?
does it require constant moisture like radishes?
does tatsoi tolerate the heat of summer (85-90 fairly humid too here in connecticut)? in the catalog (johhny's of maine) it stated it would.
thanks for the info. if tatsoi is like swiss chard then i'd love to grow it again but if it's a 1 time crop then it has too many drawbacks.
