A delicious baby type that is in so much demand with top Asian chefs. Compact plants are upright and have light green stems. They are extra tender and finely flavored.

What are the pros? easy and quick to grow

What are the cons? too quick--bolted

Review:

I bought this not knowing much about pak choy in general. I planted and soon enough had little baby pak choy. They grew rather quickly and just before I got to pick them, a day of high heat hit and boom they bolted. I then did my research and read more about these little beauties and see the error in my way. Next year I will sow earlier and harvest before the first major heat hits.

What are the pros? So, so beautiful

What are the cons? Hard to keep up with!

Review:

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.

Review:

These little plants grow fast and tasty great. I used the thinnings in a salad and have saut?ed the matured greens. Great color and texture. We will definitely be growing these again and hope they resist pests as the summer progresses.

Review:

In Zone 10 we plant Sept-February and let them go to maturity; once March/April comes around (and they bolt due to heat and humidity) we use them as a 'leaf green' snipping the green leaves as they come up and use as part of our green salad mix, similar to spinach when young and tender with a nice bite. Definitely recommend. Very little bugs bother this guy and requires less water than most greens.

What are the pros? Fast, easy, good saut?ed/raw

What are the cons? Fast bolt, small

Review:

Incredibly easy to grow and ready to eat in a couple of weeks. If you sow a row every few days you can have a continuous meal. Sudden frost or strong heat will cause early bolting. Flowers are edible and good. When I harvest by cutting and leave the root it grows but skinnier so I let the regrowth go to seed. Taste wise the leaf is firm with a clean crisp taste raw, better than spinach. Leaf is not woody. Lighter than cabbage. Great saut?ed and even stems are good. Soaks up any flavor like garlic or soy sauce.
