50 days. Here is an old Japanese variety that is superbly adapted to cool weather. An excellent loose leaf cabbage, the signature savoyed leaves are tender and sweet, perfect raw in salads, or try the leaves stir fried. They retain their nutrients and beautiful chartreuse color even when cooked. Chirimen Hakusai tops the list for cool season veggies with excellent cold hardiness and the ability to be harvested multiple times. Plants reach a foot in height at maturity.

Review:

My new favorite! Planted it in September and it was ready fro baby greens in 30 days. I have harvested leaves from it twice for salads: tender, large and nothing bothers them here right now. Critters ate all of my lettuce, but this cabbage and Swiss chard were the only things they did not touch. I will plant it again next spring at a larger spacing ( mine were spaced about 10" apart).

Review:

Having poor results growing lettuce at my site over the years, I had high hopes and was not disappointed. Just tried an immature head from thinning and I agree with some of the other reviews that this tastes almost exactly like lettuce, which is exactly what I wanted. Thanks to those reviewers, their comments helped me find this variety, and now I will be able to grow "lettuce" at my site.

Review:

This year my cool-weather crops were planted about four weeks later than would be normal. It was too late for most of our cabbage crops but I chucked these in the garden on a whim since it said 50 days. It grew like the blazes and when we had an unseasonably hot streak all my pok choi bolted, but this didn't. It was a little stressed and needed lots of water. We harvested it and it was tasty! Stir fry's nicely has a mild cabbage taste and just a little spice (maybe it wouldn't if it hadn't got so hot). I planted it at a 2 foot spacing, and this was too much. It could definitely stand 18 inch centers in grid planting, on 12 inch spacing if you do one row. I will plant again in the fall and see how long into fall I can get it to survive under cover. It made the perfect spring cabbage for our area as most European cabbages take too long to mature.

What are the pros? Beautiful, i think

What are the cons? Tasted too good

Review:

This cabbage is easy to grow and has a beautiful color. Problem is - it must taste really good because everything eats it before it gets big enough for me to harvest. Bugs, caterpillars, my chicken....can’t keep anything away even though i’ve covered it with netting. I keep trying though because it must be delicious. Will let you know, if i ever get to eat it.

Review:

I planted these in October, since leafy greens are winter crops out here, and have enjoyed eating them as part of our salads. There really isn't anything too special or fancy, they taste like slightly bitter lettuce. As of a week ago (About February 6th or so) I started seeing the flower buds starting. Interestingly enough, it's looking a lot like a broccoli floret, so I may wait and see how that turns out. This was pretty easy to grow, but if you're looking for something with a cabbage or mustard green flavor, you won't find it with this one.
