Unlike many traditional European and New World vegetables, most Asian vegetables mature very quickly, and once ready to harvest must be picked within a day or so. Small regular sowings are required. Pak Choi (Bok Choy) and Chinese Cabbage (Wong Bok) are best sown in summer and autumn in cold areas, July to March in warm areas and all year in tropics. Sow the seed where the crop is to be grown, watering and feeding generously.
Chinese Cabbage Wong Bok Hybrid
Brassica rapa pekinensis
Large “Barrel” shaped variety with heads ready in as little as 60-65 days from sowing. Very reliable, particularly in hot weather when it is highly resistant to running to seed.
