What is Yu Choy?

Yu Choy is another variety of Chinese broccoli that has thinner stems than the typical Chinese broccoli. Yo Choy brings a strong flavor and bitterness to dishes.

Yu Choy also has small, bright yellow flowers that appear as green buds initially in loosely compacted clusters of 10-20 buds. The leaves, stems, and flowers of Yu choy are all edible and have a crunchy, tender consistency. Yu choy has a sweet, green taste similar to baby spinach, with subtle bitter and peppery notes.
