Thanks beforewisdom. I've been looking into seeds lately to do just that. :)

Have you had a taste of Choy Sum yourself?

Yes, it is very tender. I'm surprised it is not a hit.

You might not have to grow it. I don't know about Italy, but at least in the U.S. it is a fairly standard item in Chinese supermarkets.

Sounds good by how you describe it because I detest kale and spinach with a great passion! :wink:

I will have to look around however I do love the Idea of growing my own veggies, even if it is a little bit. I have a feeling within me screaming that we humans should be helping nature flourish!

The thing is that what people eat is very integrated into the culture of Italy which makes finding non-Italian foods very challenging and China town isn't around the corner. :(

I was good cooked, less 'slimy' than spinach. Raw seemed a bit bitter, but it could have just been the batch I got.

Thank you for sharing fallen horse.

Does bitter mean oxalates?

No, because bitter can mean many things: vitamin c, sensitive tastebuds, other substances etc

FWIW, the book I got the information from quoted a study on the absorbability of calcium in various vegetables. The "3 times kale" thing I quoted was shorthand for "3 times the usable calcium of kale"
