Days to Full Maturity: 45 Days
Non-GMO – Heirloom – High Germination Rate
Minimum Seed Count: 200
Pak Choi is one of my favorite Chinese cabbage also known as Bok Choy and it’s a great variety to add to your garden. It’s compact which makes it great for growing in containers and small gardens. It can be used at many different stages for additions to soups, salads, and meats, and more. The head of Pak Choi is thick, with white ribs, and dark green leaves. Pak Choi has a crisp and tender texture with a mild taste. Pak Choi is very cold hardy and grows over an extended period of time maturing in approximately 50 days.
How to grow:
Pak Choi grows quickly in cool weather with fertile soil. You can prepare the soil with compost or organic matter; Chinese cabbage prefers full sun or partial shade and grows 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. Direct sow Pak Choi Chinese Cabbage seeds 1/4″ deep about 12″ apart in rows that are about 12″ apart; germination should take place in about 10 days. For a fall crop, direct sow in July (I usually start in late August-early September in central Florida). In warmer climates, seeds could be sowed in the shade to be protected from heat. For companion plants with beets, bush beans, carrots, chamomile, chard, cucumbers, dill, kale, lettuce, mint, nasturtiums, potatoes, sage, and spinach.
