This delicious staple in Asian cuisine has deep green leaf blades with white stems that form a tight clustered rosette. Very tender with a sweet mustard flavor, leaves and stems may be eaten raw in salads, stir fried or added to soups. Since Pac Choi is somewhat reminiscent of celery in flavor and texture it is often used as a replacement in recipes. Alternately spelled Pak Choi, Bok Choy and Bac Choi by different cultures, Pac Choi most often refers to the smaller sized ‘heads’.

SOWING…Plant in spring as soon as ground can be worked, in rows 2 feet apart, spacing seeds 1 inch apart in the rows. Cover seed with ¼ inch of fine soil, well pressed down.

THINNING…When plants are 2 to 3 inches tall, thin or transplant to 18 inches apart.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 5 to 10 days depending on soil and weather conditions.

REMARKS…Harvest rosettes at 8 to 12 inches tall, before they fully mature. Plants prefer cool weather, but can be grown as baby greens even in the summer months. Plant seeds every 2 to 3 weeks. Harvest baby plants 3 to 4 inches tall. Eat your thinnings too!
