Pak Choi - Joi Choi F1
Joi Choi is an excellent variety with dark green leaves and pure white stems which grow uniformly and neatly. It is slow to bolt and has a good frost resistance. It is used whole when it is about 10cm tall or grown larger so that the individual leaves can be used. Pak Choi can be used raw in salads, but when it is cooked it is slightly spicy in taste.
Sow from May to August. Sow thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared soil. Sow from May for baby leaf, June onwards for full-size plants. Allow 40cm between rows. It can also be sown into modules filled with seed-sowing compost and transplanted out, filling vacant spaces on the plot. Keep well watered in dry spells. Harvest unthinned as baby leaves, or you can also thin out seedlings or plant out modules 25cm apart to produce mature plants.
