Soft leaves and crunchy, white stems have a very mild mustard-like flavor. Makes a beautiful, single-serving presentation when harvested when small.
This ancient, Asian green, also called pak choi, is just as excellent in a stir fry as in a marinated salad. Harvest at 5"–6" tall in only about 35 days for tender, baby choi. Plants are ideal for growing in containers, make a pretty addition to mixed containers, and resist bolting.
Variety InfoSmooth, dark green leafy blades in a cluster, with white, crisp stems.
