Why is my Chinese leaf covered in spines?
I have recently grown several Chinese Leaf or Chinese Cabbage plants in a raised bed and they have grown very quickly and seemingly healthily but now that they appear ready to be harvested, I have found that they are covered in tiny spines that sting when you touch them. Surely this isn't normal? I have never been stung when buying one in Tesco!
