I went to a day long gardening class yesterday. One of the subjects was minor vegetables. The instructor mentioned Chinese cabbage. It sure looked good to me. Is it easy to grow?

RE: Chinese cabbage?

Yes but remember that are quite a few asian vegetables called "chinese cabbage". The NAPA type is the most common. Does quite well as a fall planting, many varieties are prone to bolting when spring planted. Pak Choi/Bok Choy is sometimes refered to as Chinese cabbage. It is as easy to grow as radishes both spring and fall. Pei Tsai, Choy Sum, Nabana are also called generically Chinese cabbage.

RE: Chinese cabbage?

I am going to grow some kind of smallish Bok Choy. Even with our PNW cool weather , they bolt in no time.
