Tokyo Bekana is distinguished for being an extremely loose head and lightweight cabbage, more lettuce-like than cabbage-like in flavor and texture. At harvest age, its tender yet crisp ruffled and expanded lime green leaves are supported by narrow white petioles.  Tokyo Bekana cabbage is succulent with mild pepper nuances and a melting quality unique to all cabbage varieties. It is an open-pollinated heirloom known for being harvested when young, petite and as a microgreen. Tokyo Bekana, though an heirloom, was first cultivated in Japan and is a descendent of Chinese loose-heading cabbages. It is grown heavily in rural Japan as well as in Asian farming communities throughout the Western Hemisphere. Tokyo Bekana is known for its quick germination and growth in cold temperatures.
