Very popular 'Asian Green', closely related to Pak Choi with similar flavour. However with Choi Sum it is usually best to harvest the plants once the flower bud is formed and open. Individually flowering stems and leaves can also be picked and this will allow the plant to regrow for several cuts. Young leaves can be added to salads or leaves, stems and flowers can be stir-fried.

Sowing Instructions

Sow outdoors, May to September.
Thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm (0.5") deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Sow from May for baby leaf, June onwards for full size plants. Allow 40cm (16") between rows. Seedlings usually appear after 14-21 days. Keep well watered in dry spells. Harvest unthinned as baby leaves or thin to 25cm (10") apart to produce mature plants. Regular sowings made every 2 to 3 weeks will ensure a continuous supply. For 'baby leaf' pick a few leaves from each plant from approx 5cm (2") high, they will regrow for up to '4 cuts'.
