CHINESE CABBAGE – Tokyo Bekana

(250 seeds)

$4.15

(3 customer reviews)
Versatile, authentic heirloom variety
Not all Chinese cabbages are the same. This loose-headed variety is a great salad ingredient, pot herb or stir-fry ingredient and extremely popular with those who love growing microgreens. The flavour is similar to that of lettuce, and if you let the leaves mature, their ruffled leaves will be attractive to people who feel food should look just as good as it tastes. This Japanese heirloom has stood the test of time.

How to Sow

Prepare soil with a lot of compost and organic matter prior to sowing. Chinese Cabbages can be started in trays but direct sowing followed by thinning is preferable. The plants will grow best in full sun in temperatures between 15 – 24C. Keep an eye on the plants as they will tend to bolt if they get too hot or lack enough moisture.

How to Harvest

Your plants take just 30 days to reach maturity, but you can eat them earlier. Harvest single leaves or cut the whole head as needed.

    Tender leaves with a nice mild flavour which I’m harvesting as I need for stir fries or blanching.
