Brassica chinensis 'Asian Delight'

 

 

  • Tender, mild flavor
  • Early maturing
  • Many culinary uses

Details

Brassica chinensis 'Asian Delight' matures about 5 days earlier than other varieties when harvested as a baby Pak Choi but it can be grown to a full-size head as well.  The tender leaves and crisp sweet stalks are a tasty addition to Oriental recipes or eaten raw. Swap stalks for celery sticks, add to soups and stews, or grill on the barbecue. The flavor is quite mild, tender, and succulent. The compact, upright, dense plant habit allows for close garden spacing.  This classy specimen is great for home gardeners with limited space and makes an attractive “thriller” for patio pots and containers. 30-50 days to maturity (depending on desired size)
