What are the pros? Easy to grow, deep flavor
What are the cons? Quick to bolt
I have grown this twice now, and will grow again. They go so quickly and require little but regular watering once they are sown, sprouted, and thinned.
Choys in general seem to grow very quickly, and will bolt as soon as you turn your back. I have picked this bolted pak choy and cooked with it, as well as fermented it as kimchi. Its flavor is so rich and deeply green; I'm no scientist but this tastes full of iron, vitamins, and nutrients.
I will be planting this again in profusion, but will keep a close eye on it and watch for bolting.
This did well in spring and early summer, and seems to tolerate heat better than other leafy greens do.
