What's so special about our Bok Choi?

This oriental leafy cabbage grows fast. Our Bok Choi produces compact heads, so 4 of them fit in one 30x30 cm garden plot. 
For most varieties, late June is the time to sow Bok Choi. This variety is different. Our Bok Choi grows super fast and does best in springtime. 

If sown in late June, these plants will bolt in a hot second. 

So, sow in spring or the very end of summer. Trust me :-).

Sowing and growing

Growing Bok Choi is simple. You'll see your first seedlings in no time. From then on, the plants grow quickly. 
Just watch out: snails and caterpillars love leafy cabbages like Bok Choi. 
And once the plants are mature, they’ll go to flower. So, be sure to harvest them in time.
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app.  

How do you use it?

Bok Choi leaves and the stems are delicious. Young raw leaves are great in salads, but are most often used in stir-fries. 
You can also try raw Bok Choy in your mashed potatoes: throw in some cheese, bacon or minced meat. Or try the vegetarian version with fried onions and mushrooms: yum!
