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? Easy to start and transplant.
What are the cons? None
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.
What are the pros? Beauty & flavor
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!

What are the pros? Easy
What are the cons? Aphid attack
Started seeds in cell packs Feb 16, transplanted to garden April 1. Transplanted fine. Grew under row cover because we have problems with cabbage moth and we don't use any sprays. Grew beautiful heads. Young leaves were delicious raw; used them in spring rolls. Harvested some in mid-May and they were beautiful. The ones we let grow a couple of weeks longer were attacked by a horrendous aphid infestation under the row cover. This is not a reflection on the variety, more of a comment on the practice of growing under Agribon row cover - check daily!

This delicious cabbage is still producing delicious greens, and did all the way through dry, hot Hawaii weather. Did not bolt.
