Holland Greens  
Asian greens from the brassica rapa family of greens that are a hybrid of a stubble turnip crossed with a Chinese cabbage. Ranging in size from small to large, the leaves of the Holland greens can be picked when very small to be served in salads or allowed to grow into larger leaves that can be picked to be steamed and served as a vegetable side dish of greens, similar to mustard or collard greens. Since they can be repeatedly cut, continuing to produce leaves after cuttings, this plant is capable of providing many greens for use in a variety of dishes. Also known as Tyfon greens, this variety of brassica green does not contain mustard oil, so the flavor is very mild in taste.
