Red Pak Choi -Seedlings from Organic Certified Seeds
  • Red Pak Choi / Bok choy, also known as Chinese cabbage or pak choi, is a leafy green vegetable that belongs to the Brassica family.

    Here are some characteristics and growing tips for bok choy:


    • Flavor: The flavor of bok choy is mild, slightly sweet, and can have a hint of mustard.
    • Nutrition: It is a nutritious vegetable, rich in vitamins A and C, calcium, and antioxidants.

    Growing Methods:

    • Soil: Bok choy prefers well-draining, fertile soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH.
    • Planting: Sow seeds directly or transplant seedlings. Space the plants about 6-12 inches apart, depending on the variety.
    • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid waterlogged conditions. Mulching can help retain moisture.

    Ideal Temperatures and Climate:

    • Temperature: Bok choy thrives in cool to mild temperatures. The ideal temperature range for growing is between 50°F to 75°F (10°C to 24°C).
    • Climate: It is well-suited for both spring and fall planting. Bok choy can tolerate light frost but may bolt (go to seed) in hot weather.

    Harvesting Period:

    • Baby Bok Choy: Harvest when the plants are about 4-6 inches tall, typically within 40-50 days of planting.
    • Mature Bok Choy: Harvest when the plants are 10-12 inches tall, usually within 45-60 days of planting.
    • Harvesting Method: Cut the base of the plant just above the soil level using a sharp knife or scissors. You can harvest the whole plant or pick individual leaves.

    Watering Preferences:

    • Consistent Moisture: Bok choy prefers consistently moist soil. Water regularly, especially during dry periods.
    • Avoid Overwatering: While bok choy likes moisture, it's essential to prevent waterlogging, as this can lead to root rot.

    Light Preferences:

    • Sunlight: Bok choy benefits from partial shade to full sun, especially in cooler climates.
    • Protection: In hot climates, providing some shade during the hottest part of the day can prevent the plants from bolting.

    By following these guidelines, you can cultivate healthy and flavorful bok choy in your garden or containers.
