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 U.S. 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 homemade 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.

What are the pros? Easy, no major pest problems
What are the cons? None
Easy to grow. I forgot about it, but it did fine. I didnt get the usual cabbage pests and caterpillars like some varieties I have tried in the past. Mine also didnt maintain tight, napa style heads, but were more open and flower like. It's a keeper!

Nice flavor when stir fried with a garlic, little salt and soy sauce.
What are the pros? Resilient, hasn't bolted yet!
This cabbage is super easy to grow. I leave for a few months with a drip timer, and they grew like weed. For some reason the ones I grew spread out like a flower and not like the bulb you typically see as pictured.

What are the pros? Heat, bug and drought tolerant
I planted this is a large pot in a hot place in the garden, along with a tomato plant. I picked leaves in July thinking they would soon brown out. What a mistake! It is mid-August with temps regularly in the upper 90s since May (!) and I just picked a head of this from one bit of growth that escaped my earlier picking. I did regularly use diatomaceous earth to keep bugs under control, and the leaves aren't perfect specimens, but hey, cabbage in Kansas City in August? I will be growing this again! Perfect shredded on fish tacos.
