Even'star is a variety of Tatsoi which is a member of the Mustard family. Its botanical name is Brassica narinosa 'Even'star'.

Despite its name, this is not a classic basal rosette tatsoi. It is instead derived from a Tenderleaf-Tatsoi cross and shows some variability in form. Excellent for cut-and-come-again, whole-plant harvesting, or selective cutting for cooking greens. Sweet, succulent, tender with heavy profitable leaves. A superb mild component to tone down mustards in cooking blends. Selected for tender sweet leaves, 100% winter hardiness in Maryland and superior vigor. More upright growth form than standard tatsoi, but with much less cold-burn leaf damage following deep freezes and more rapid bounce back.

This variety is a Vegetable that typically grows as an Biennial, which is defined as a plant that matures and completes its lifecycle over the course of two years.

Even'star Tatsoi tends to need a moderate amount of maintenance, so ensuring that you are aware of the soil, sun, ph and water requirements for this plant is quite important to ensure you have a happy and healthy plant.
