1.8g (Approx. 820 to 850 seeds)    

Organic seed for a very easy to grow, open pollinated cross between mustard and spinach that produces mild flavored greens. A great spinach substitute during Alaska's long summer days. Tendergreen is a Japanese green also referred to as "Komatsuma" which is used both fresh and in stir frys. Plants mature very early and produce smooth, semi-erect, oblong, thick, glossy, dark green leaves with pale midribs that have a flavor that is milder than traditional mustard. The plants spread 16 to 24 inches, are cold tolerant and very bolt and drought resistant making it excellent choice for Alaska. This is one reliable green that no vegetable garden should be without. Very nutritious.
