DEEP PURPLE

« Back

An outstanding innovation for babyleaf production, DEEP PURPLE is a red tatsoi which produces attractive purple/magenta leaves.  Fast to mature with a growth habit similar to the standard green tatsoi, DEEP PURPLE has bright, glossy coloured leaves and a succulent, mustard flavour. The semi-erect habit means that a high plant population is required to assist leaves to stand up for machine harvesting.
