Cabbage Pak Choi Green Stem

Cabbage Pak Choi Green Stem, Shanghai Pak Choy, or Baby Pak Choy has green stems and a mature height of just 6 to 8-inches. Harvest young and the entire plant may be steamed and eaten whole, as it is in southern China.  Varieties with green stems can withstand more adverse conditions that its white stemmed form. We recommend to sow the seeds early or late in the season because they quickly bolt in hot dry conditions. You can grow them into early winter and use young flowering stems like broccoli.

Cultivation Advice Cabbage Pak Choi Green Stem

  • Moderately Hardy, can be sown as soon as the soil can be worked and then throughout until late season. Is vulnerable to bolting during hot or dry periods, therefore best sown early and late in the season. Best direct seeded to a depth of 1/8 inch, and firm soil gently or alternatively start under cover in plugs.
  • Germinates n 7-14 days, depending upon soil and weather conditions.
  • We do not recommended to transplant bare roots, because the plants can go into shock and the plant bolts to seed.
  • In dry weather, keep soil moist and during germination.
  • Harvest young. Flowers are edible.
  • Sow every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply.
