  • Description

    This giant choy is celebrated for its snowy white and supremely succulent stems. Plants stand over 16 inches tall, and the thick stems are extremely juicy, with a perfect crispy texture. Enjoy raw as a refreshing snack (far superior to celery sticks) or in salads. Stunning when stir fried, steamed, or swirled into soups! Jere Gettle encountered this gourmet variety while visiting the city of Nanjing, China. There you can still find this traditional cabbage along sidewalks, drying for wintertime use.

    Growing Tips

    Prefers full sun to part shade. Average moisture needs. Soil should be well drained and ideally amended with well- rotted compost. Plant spacing will depend on the variety; large varieties can be spaced or thinned to 12 inches apart, while the small-headed varieties can be spaced 6 inches apart and micro varieties will only need about 2-4 inches. Rows should be 18-32 inches apart. Bok choy is fairly heat tolerant, but it should be noted that frost or sustained nightime temperatures under 50 F may cause the young plants to bolt, so resist the temptation to plant them out too early. Cold temperatures typically will not cause mature plants to bolt. Sow again in late summer for fall harvest. When sowing in fall, be sure to mulch plants and provide consistent moisture.
