HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Prepare the soil with compost or organic matter; Chinese cabbage prefers full sun or partial shade, and grow best in temperatures from 45-75 F (7-24 C). Direct seeding works best, about 4-6 weeks before the last average spring frost date. Plant seeds 1/4" deep about 12" apart in rows about 12" apart; germination should take place in about 10 days. For a fall crop, direct sow in July.

Growing: Keep the soil evenly moist for the healthiest growth. If the sun gets too hot, Chinese cabbage tends to "bolt" or go to seed; in long periods of heat, some kind of shade may be helpful. Watch out for snails, as they will harm the plants.

Harvesting: Single leaves or the entire plant may be harvested, either at 28 days for the tender baby leaf stage or when a fully mature head at 50 days. For freshest taste, use within five days.

Seed Saving: In areas where the ground freezes over winter, it will be necessary to dig up the plant before the first heavy frost; cut off the top to 3" and store the roots in sand or sawdust over winter, and plant them again in the spring. In warmer climates, cover the plant thickly with mulch over winter. In the spring, allow the plant to flower and go to seed. When the long green pods turn brown, pick them individually. Pour boiling water over the seeds to kill any bacteria that may have formed, them let them completely dry. Remove the pods and store the seeds in a cool, dry place.

Review By Kathryn Hanks

vigorous and heavy heads

This pak choi grows well for us and yields very well. The hefty, full size heads have a crisp white stalk, and the ones we harvested at a younger stage looked nice banded together for a more "baby" product.

Review By Barb from Florida

Excellent and Easy

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).

DESCRIPTION

Pak Choi is a Chinese vegetable variety that is grown for a multitude of uses. It can be used at many different stages for additions to soups, salads, and meats, etc. The heads have thick, white ribs, and is also called "Bok Choy" in some locations. Matures in approximately 50 days.
Chinese cabbage dates back to the 15th century in China, when a pharmacologist of the Ming Dynasty considered it nutritionally beneficial. Later it became the main ingredient in kim chi, the national dish of Korea; Japanese soldiers also discovered Chinese cabbage and took it home with them after the war. Americans became familiar with this vegetable in the late 19th century.
