Chinese Cabbage, Hilton

70 days. Very easy to grow and made perfect heads in our Missouri gardens. Here’s a superior Napa- type Chinese cabbage variety that has seldom been seen in the US. Medium-sized barrel-shaped heads are densely packed with crinkled, mild-tasting leaves. The preferred variety in the UK. Great raw or stir-fried, or in home-made kimchi!

(bai cai 白菜) The Chinese characters for the cabbage’s green (qing) and white (bai) colors are puns for “clean” or “without stain,” referring to one’s personal life. “Cai” may also mean wealth. Thus, the simple cabbage was a favorite subject of Chinese painters as a symbol of humbleness and modesty.

Review:

This is the only cabbage I have grown in Missouri which was not eaten by bugs. It grew quickly, made perfect heads, growing close together without a problem, and lasted well over a month in hot weather after maturing. Also perfect for smaller families! I had to buy more seed as I can't find the seed I collected last year.

Review:

I'm in zone 6B. I planted these under row covers March 15. I harvested the first few heads May 12th. As noted in the description, they do make perfect heads. They are delicious and I made 10 quarts of Kimchi from them.

Review:

This cabbage is delicious! I started harvesting parts of the head in early June to put in salad. Reminds me of a very crisp romaine. The heads are so big now and they stay fresh a long time in the fridge. Will definitely plant again.

Review:

Started seeds indoors in late March. Transplanted plugs into raised-bed garden in late April. Spaced for high-intensity gardening. Kept watered and mulched. Harvested first head on July 1, 2017. Steamed leaves until soft and pliable, then filled for spring rolls. Drizzled homemade apricot sauce over the top of the spring rolls. Fruits are easy to grow and quite "showy". Good for CSA boxes and farmer's market, too!
