GROW: transplant at the 2/3 leaf stage and space at 10cm for small plants or up to 30cm if you want to grow larger plants.

Harvest: as a cut-and-come-again start cutting for salad leaves when the plants reach about 10cm high... either pick single leaves OR cut whole plant 5cm above ground (they can resprout 4 or 5 times).  You can cut leaves at any stage from small to large, larger leaves have a stronger flavour. Kyoto can tolerate low temperatures to about -10°C if kept cropped but protect with a cloche from excessive rain or snow. Fast growing – crop plants from 6-8 weeks after planting.  Grow in part shade for an even longer harvest & stop when the plants flower,

EAT: for salad use whole young leaves or shred larger leaves. You can also steam, stir fry or use the leaves in soups.
