  • Cool season annual
  • Maturity: Approx. 25-45 days
  • Planting season: Late spring to early
  • Cultivation: Chinese cabbage prefers cool temperatures for its main growing season. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. In temperate areas sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost or late summer/early fall. Plant year round in tropical areas. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Exposure to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting. Harvest at any stage.
  • Note: Chinese Cabbage requires vernalization. Bud differentiation and bolting results from low temperatures of 41°F for a week or 50°F for two weeks. For spring harvest, transplant seedlings with 5-7 true leaves raised at 73-75°F during the day and over 53°F at night. Providing plants with adequate water and fertilizer after transplanting will promote faster growth.
