Pak Choi

I get so excited when we grow and eat our own food. I am fairly new to this experience and am enjoying it so much.

Pak Choi



This wonderful vegetable - pak choi, (also called bok choy, chinese or peking cabbage),  is such a fast growing vegetable. It takes only about six weeks from seed to supper table and is a delicious alternative to lettuce when raw, and to cabbage when lightly cooked. It is particularly good in a stir fry. The stalks are very crispy and generally better when cooked but the leaves can be shredded raw in almost any dish. These are growing in the raised vegetable beds at about three weeks old - the leaves can be treated as a 'cut and come again' salad leaf and are very nutritious.
