Monthly Tip

Asian Vegetables

Tip description
You can easily grow some vegetables used in different types of Asian cuisine and found in Asian markets. They are not necessarily native to Asia but have found their way into various cuisines. One way to decide which food to grow yourself is to choose varieties that aren't readily available or are more expensive in your local markets. It’s also fun to impress your family, friends, and neighbors with something they may not have seen growing before. Possibilities include sesame seeds, bitter melon, daikon radishes, gai choy, and opo. You can start cruciferous vegetables such as bok choy and Napa cabbage from seed now.
