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.

What are the pros? Heat, bug and drought tolerant

Review:

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.

What are the pros? easy to grow, early maturity

What are the cons? none

Review:

Very healthy, great looking and tasting, and just thriving in my zone 4 plant! I am so surprised and pleased with how easy it is growing, how resistant it is to the pests, mildew, changes in temperature and humidity. I always expect part of the crop to be damaged, especially cabbage, but this one is still standing, every single germinated seed. So I guess I'll have to make tons of Korean kimchi this year, Lol!

What are the pros? perfect size for 2 people

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.
