(Brassica rapa) “Very tasty, robust, and resilient” is how Seed Savers Exchange staff describes this loose-heading Chinese cabbage. Its large, vibrant-green leaves grow upright and arching, forming long, cylindrical heads with a very crunchy, juicy texture and a peppery flavor. Plants reach 26"" tall and up to 3' wide. Leaves become much sweeter after a frost. 75-80 days until heading."

Greens are traditionally associated with slow cooking. Combine chopped leaves with ham hocks or thick slices of bacon and garlic. After about 90 minutes of simmering a broth known as pot liquor will form and can be used in other dishes or to top your servings.

Growing Instructions

Instructions - Sow seed indoors 1?4"" deep 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Plant out just before the last frost. Take care not to disrupt the shallow root system while transplanting and weeding. Make sure cabbage has a regular supply of water. Mulching cabbage will reduce weeds and keep moderate temperatures and even moisture in the soil. Cabbage is a heavy feeder and consequently needs an even supply of nutrients.

  • Start Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost
  • Direct Seed: 1/2" Deep
  • Thin: 1-6" Apart
  • Plant Outdoors: 6-8” Apart
