This very smooth and soft vegetable is called Wang Tai Miu in Cantonese.Or literally translated from Chinese to English as King Vegetable Shoot.Accordingly to my mom this vegetable is so easy to plants and survived.She just use the upper part with leaves and leave the bottom part stalk about 3 inch long for planting.Then she compiled all he bottom part stalks and plants into the prepared soil.After couple of weeks the fresh organic leaves will grown out!!Taaa...dah!! It's time for harvest!! This is the first time I ever ate this type of smooth soft silk like vegetable.I love it very much.If you have never try this type of green ,you should try it when you have the chance!! You can get this vegetable in any supermarket or wet market.
