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.
