Shanghai Bok Choy
Petite, perfectly- shaped bok choy heads for spring & fall. Baby bok choy is one of the most versatile crops of the garden. It grows exceptionally quickly, tolerates both cold & heat, and can be sown in succession for crops nearly all season long. The swooping, vase-shaped base form a beautiful whorl of thick green petioles- softening to a sweet, ambrosial flesh when cooked. Enjoy them all season: infant choy herald the start of spring; thick-petioled bunches grill beautifully in mid-summer; and toddler boks perk up in the chill of fall. Certified organic. Non-GMO, open pollinated seeds. Seed count: 200. Seed package design by Amy Cheng
Growing: Direct sow 4 weeks before last frost, or sow under protection 8-10 weeks before last frost; continue through August. Will form baby heads at 6in spacing, but if given 12-24in you’ll get much larger plants. Harvest by cutting the entire head at the base. Requires ample water and fertile soil. Spring crop will bolt; harvest promptly! Fall crop will not; harvest at your own pace.
