Pak Choi Baby Shanghai Greens Seeds (Organic)

Pak Choi Baby Shanghai Greens - Prized for Its Flavor and Tenderness

Pak Choi - Baby Shanghai - Brassica rapa var. chinensis

Biennial grown as an annual Heirloom. Shanghai is the most popular Baby Pak Choi, for its flavor and tenderness. Vase-shaped heads grow quickly with juicy dark green leaves and pale green ribs. Heat tolerant but it will bolt in summer heat, or if the temperature drops below 50°F for a week.

Did You Know? Pak choi can be pickled, braised, stir-fried, or steamed.

Soil & Water: Pak Choi prefers rich, fertile soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Add plenty of organic matter. Provide regular, even moisture to avoid bitterness. This is a popular grower in cool climate areas.

Planting & Growing: Start in trays indoors 2-3 weeks before the last frost. Direct seed at the end of summer for a fall crop. Direct seeded spring crops often bolt too soon. Succession plant every 2 weeks for continuous crops. Shanghai grows best in cool temperatures with full sun, but can also grow in part-shade during the summer.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting individual leaves after the center rosette has begun to develop, or harvest the whole head. Drying allows this highly perishable vegetable to be stored for winter months. To dry, dip the leaves in boiling water and hang them in the sun for several days.

Soil Temperature: 65-80°F
Planting Depth: 1/4"-1/2"
Germination: 3-10 Days
Height At Maturity: 5"-6"
Days to Maturity: 35-45 Days
Sun/Shade: Full Sun
Spacing After Thinning: 6"-8"
Approx Seeds per Pack: 250 Seeds

Yummy baby Bok Choy

I first ate this flavorful and healthy green when living in China about 40 years ago and grew these Peaceful Valley seeds in my garden last year. They were a huge success, prolific, tasty, and resilient. It can get very hot during the day and very cold at night in the Zuni Mountains, NM where I live and these greens did very well. I thinned by harvesting the smaller, more crowded plants to eat in salads. The flower heads are also quite delicious, so I let some bolt and flower. New shoots will form when one cuts the flower stalk, so you can enjoy over and over again.

Super delicious!!

I love Chinese food! And that's what these pak choys are great for. I sowed the seeds in the raised bed with my other cold weather leafy greens, the seeds sprouted quickly, I didn't thin them out, I'm pretty sure I had 100% sprout rate, just let it grow to around 10" tall, harvest the big ones every day, very delicious and tender.

off to a good start

sprouted quickly; hardening off before going into the raised beds. I like the "baby" size pak choi as it's just the right size for a family of two people
