I've grown Pak Choi (& Baby Bok Choi) before but I had far better germination rates with these seeds. I think everyone of them germinated and I sowed most in the Florida dirt/sand - not the raised beds. It really is Amazing to me.
I saw some flower buds forming on some of them plants so harvested those today (a little more than 30 days).
