Technological advancements in vegetable production and greenhouses has made it possible to eat most vegetables all year round, but some seasonal bites still only last a little while. The small leafy xiangchun is one example.

The tender leaves of the Chinese mahogany tree, xiangchun has a very strong and rich aroma that some find hard to accept. It is also the most cherished vegetable in the fresh produce market. It's not sold by kilos, but by grams.

People usually fry xiangchun with eggs or tofu. Here are some examples to enjoy it before it disappears next month.
