Ergo, your directions are irrelevant.
This is my first year for this cabbage, but it has just survived snow, ice, and six degree temps here in Piedmont North Carolina this January, so I'm very happy with it. I just cut a few leaves from each plant and saute it, sometimes with other greens. I'm sold!
If you like tatsoi, you will probably like Yukina savoy cabbage, since it grows and tastes like tatsoi. If you aren't familiar with either, the texture is like spinach and the flavor is similar to kale. I add the leaves to salads.The stems can be a bit stringy.
Couple of thoughts...Once theses started to grow, I was amazed at how gorgeous they are. Then I realized I had know idea what to do. Do I wait for a head to form, do I harvest the leaves? I'm thinking by the leaf like Swiss Chard, so before I loose all of them that's what I'll be doing. Next year I will definitely plant this cabbage in my perennial garden and let everyone figure out just what it is ! Wonder if I could can this.... Four stars are because I really didn't have any idea how to deal with this cabbage, but will next year.
