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.

Brassica rapa chinensis
Glossy purple /red leaves with pale green stems. Excellent for colour in leafy mixes when young or when fully grown. Cool season growth gives the best colour. Fully mature in approx 45 days, it is highly resistant to running up to seed.
