KAILAN : BLOOMING

This is my kailan 'Nova'.
I have enjoyed the taste and crispy texture.
Now... I'm enjoying the beauty of its flower.


I let a pot of kailan Nova to produce seeds for the next planting.


As  background, there are round leaved kailans that I pick the leaves repeatedly.


The little fruits have been forming on the lower side.



Beautiful white flowers look so stunning.



Enjoy the beauty after I've enjoyed the delicacy....

    1. I have never cooked this flower, but my friend said that this flower tastes plain and great for stir fried with chopped garlic. I think, it almost similar to cabbage or kale.
      Thank you for visiting, have a great week!

    1. Salam Ana,
      My friend said that this flower is edible, but I have never eat it yet. I should try to cook it, but I've planned to save seed from this plant. Hope this plant will produce good seeds.
