Brassica rapa var. perviridis
Komatsuna, or Japanese Spinach Mustard, is a nutritious and beautiful leaf vegetable. It has probably been cultivated in Japan for ages. With its long bending leaves, komatsuna looks pretty, especially in its baby stage. It's hardy and grows fast. It has a nice texture and a gentle green fresh flavor with a hint of mustard. Komatsuna is an excellent source for vitamins A and C, and has a good amount of calcium. You can do with komatsuna whatever takes your fancy. Use it like you would use kale or spinach. Mix a handful of raw baby leaves to salads. The largest leaves can be roughly chopped and wilted on a pan or steamed, added to soups and stews, or tossed to pasta.
The Komatsuna and Mizuna make for a great all-purpose salad bowl base.
