CHINESE CABAGGE PAK CHOIThis member of the cabbage family has a number of different names, including pak choi. Its structure looks like a squat celery, with either white or very pale green short, chunky stalks and glossy, deep green leaves. The texture of both leaves and stalks is crisp, and the flavor is somewhere between mild cabbage and spinach. If very young it can be eaten raw in salads, but is best when briefly cooked.Planting instructions:When considering planting Chinese cabbage, you have to remember that you can grow an early winter or mid-winter crop or a spring crop. Planting Chinese cabbage requires heavy soil that holds moisture. To keep your Chinese cabbage growing well during the season, you should fertilize the soil before planting. Also, make sure plants get enough water throughout the season. Planting Chinese cabbage can be done in late summer to fall (August through October) for an early winter or mid-winter crop, or in winter (January) for a spring crop. It all depends on when you want your cabbage to be harvested. When you plant in winter, you want your growing Chinese cabbage where it is protected from cold, ice and frost as it matures. Growing Chinese cabbage is done best when the plants are 10 inches apart. This gives smaller heads which are great for home use. Also, you want two- to three-pound heads, so plant them in double rows to keep the size of the heads smaller. If you plant from seed, be sure to put the seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep and 3 inches apart. When the growing Chinese cabbage is 4 to 5 inches tall, you can thin the plants to about 10 inches apart.
