Bok Choy, Snow White
(Brassica rapa var. chinensis) 50-55 days. This giant choy is celebrated for its snowy white and supremely succulent stems. Plants stand over 16 inches tall, and the thick stems are extremely juicy, with a perfect crispy texture. Enjoy raw as a refreshing snack (far superior to celery sticks) or in salads. Stunning when stir fried, steamed, or swirled into soups! Jere Gettle encountered this gourmet variety while visiting the city of Nanjing, China. There you can still find this traditional cabbage piled high along sidewalks drying for wintertime use.
