How to Grow Oasis Chrysanthemum Greens

Sow seeds directly into the soil in the early spring. Chrysanthemum greens can withstand a light frost, especially if covered. However, they will not grow well above 77℉. They are not picky about soil quality or fertilization, although, they lush out better if given ideal conditions. Chrysanthemum greens do not do well in very wet conditions. Successive sowing can be done every 2-3 weeks during the growing season to keep a continued harvest if desired. Pinch off the top two inches to encourage more branching.

Harvesting Oasis Chrysanthemum Greens

Depending on when you harvest, the taste and use of the crop will be altered. Leaves can be eaten as soon as they sprout, or leave the plants to flower and harvest greens anytime in between. Provide clean cuts and they will continue to thrive all season.

Culinary Tips

Rich in vitamin B and minerals, it is used in tempura, sukiyaki, ohitashi, yosenabe, and shabu-shabu. Flower petals can be a garnish for soups and salads. Young leaves can be cooked like spinach or used in salads.
