Kai Choi (Brassica juncea), also known as Mustard Greens, is a member of the mustard family. Kai Choi is more pungent than the closely-related Brassica oleracea greens (kale, cabbage, collard greens, et cetera). They are very frequently mixed with these milder greens in a dish of "mixed greens". Mustard greens are also extremely high in Vitamin A and Vitamin K.
The leaves are a fair grass green and it has a bitter/peppery taste. It grows to an average height of 7-8 inches.
