How to Grow Pak Choi

For growing for baby leaf for salad use, see Pak Choi Colour Crunch here:  

Seed sowing

Sow the seeds indoors in pots or modular trays during April and May or outdoors from June onwards. Sowing indoors will give the plants a head start. Sow the seeds on damp compost and lightly cover with fine sifted compost. The seedlings will be ready to plant out into their permanent positions from the end of May. If required you can repeat the sowing process throughout the summer months for a continuous supply.

Growing in beds

For outdoor growing, ensure the soil is free draining and well prepared incorporating plenty of organic matter. Sow the seeds thinly in shallow drills and cover lightly with soil. Water the drills with a watering can and fine rose attachment. Thin out the seedlings or transplant to 20cm apart. Plants grown under cover in pots or modular trays can be transplanted outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Keep the plants well watered and shade in hot conditions.

General aftercare

Water and shade are the main requirements to prevent the plants from prematurely flowering and going to seed. Remove any weeds as they appear and remove any leaves that show signs of yellowing.

Harvesting and storage

After about 30 days the baby leaves will be ready for picking for salads. In about 45 days the plants will be mature enough to harvest completely and used for stir fries and other dishes. Cut the plants cleanly at ground level with a sharp knife.

This "Pak Choi" is more like a chinese "Choi Sum", for those that know their veggies. Pak Choi is firm and crunchy, the Choi Sum more tender.
