What are the pros? So, so beautiful
What are the cons? Hard to keep up with!
Any grower of choys knows how quickly they grow, practically before your eyes. These are so incredibly gorgeous, with pale green stems and grass-green leaves striated with pale green veins. The texture is crunchy and moist, and it tastes delicious whether the plant is picked as a baby or later into its cycle. Of course they bolt quickly, but even in warm early summer, the plants don't disappoint. So far, it's my favorite of the three Baker Creek choy types I've grown (Extra Dwarf Pak Choi and Canton Bok are the others) for its exceptional beauty and fantastic flavor. Sow in place, thin sprouts, and water regularly. I added fertilizer once the plants were established, but they grew so fast that I barely had time to remember to do so. Like cabbage, I give these a good watering the night before picking to ensure great water content. Delicious both sauteed and fermented.
