Product Description：Choy sum (also spelled choi sum in Cantonese) is a leafy vegetable commonly used in Chinese cuisine. Choy sum is a transliteration of the Cantonese name (Chinese: 菜心), which can be literally translated as "heart of the vegetable". It is also known as Chinese flowering cabbage.
Because Westerners have never been very good at distinguishing between cabbage and other crops, they often confuse various vegetables in terms of names. Choy sum (also known as tall choy sum) produced in Guangdong Province is a type of choy sum, which is larger and sweeter than ordinary choy sum. It gets its name because it is produced in winter and is produced later than ordinary cabbage. It can be fried or boiled with crucian carp.
Yu choy translates to “oil vegetable,” because it’s in the rapeseed family, which is used to produce oil. Buy them as tender young plants (yu choy miu) or as more mature stalks. This versatile dark green, leafy can be stir-fried, added to soups or noodle dishes, or blanched and served with oyster sauce.
