Pak Choi Canton Dwarf

Description

Canton Dwarf is also known as Baby or Squat Pak Choi, with a dwarf compact habit producing short, broad, thick, pure white petioles and dark green, glossy, slightly savoyed leaves. It Can be cropped from small size to full plants. It has a good heat tolerance with sowing from late spring to early autumn.

Pak Choi has been grown in China for about 1500 years. It can be used whole when it grows to only 10cm tall, or it can be grown larger so that the individual leaves can be used. Pak Choi can be used raw in salads, but when cooked it has a more spicy taste.

WHEN TO SOW

May to August

WHERE TO SOW

Outdoors: sow thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared soil. Sow from May for baby leaf, June onwards for full-size plants. Allow 40cm (16in) between rows. Can also be sown into modules filled with seed sowing compost and transplanted out , filling vacant spaces on the plot.

WHAT TO DO NEXT

Keep well watered in dry spells. Harvest unthinned as baby leaves, can also thin out seedlings or plant out modules to 25cm (10in) apart to produce mature plants. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply.

HANDY TIP

For 'baby leaf', pick a few leaves from each plant when 5cm (2") tall, then allow to regrow for up to four pickings.
