Has an earthy taste and means ‘heart of the vegetable’ in Cantonese.
Choy sum (Chinese flowering cabbage) is characterised by yellow flowers borne on slightly fleshy stems. The oval leaves have slightly serrated margins and can be light or dark green. Unlike many other cabbages, it never forms compact heads and it is more similar to bok choy. This vegetable is a member of the brassica—or cabbage—family, also known as a cruciferous vegetable.
