Fun Jen Brassica
Scientific Name: Brassica rapa var chinensis
Country of Origin: Asia
Fun Jen Brassica, also known as Chinese cabbage, is a fast-growing lettuce with a wrinkled surface. Its leaves have a very delicate flavor, similar to lettuce, and it is crunchy in texture. The white ribs have a light tangy, yet sweet taste. Fun Jen Brassica is best eaten raw because the mild flavor can be overwhelmed when cooked. The flowering shoots are sweet and can also be eaten raw or cooked.
