Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Growing Suggestions:
  • Pak choi is an excellent crop for cut and come again. Baby leaves are ready to pick in as little as 30 days – snip off individual leaves, only taking a few from each plant. Plants will continue to produce fresh leaves for repeated pickings until they start to flower. The young leaves can be used raw in salads or add to stir-fries.
  • Pak choi likes cool, damp conditions, so keep plants well watered and in light shade, especially in summer.
  • Row covers can be used to protect plants from pests such as cutworms and slugs and from summer heat.
