Chinese cabbage, pac choi, and mustard greens are what typically come to mind when thinking of Oriental vegetables. But don't stop there! To the surprise of many, other vegetables and roots are truly Asian in origin as well. Because of the diverse climate throughout the Far East, many varieties grow well in most areas of North America, and we are pleased to offer a few of them here.
CULTURE: Chinese cabbage, pac choi and mustard greens are easy crops to grow if planted in early spring or late summer. They prefer cooler weather, so mid-summer plantings often lead to premature bolting. These greens are best sown directly into a fertile, well-dug, smooth seedbed. Mark your rows 18-24 inches apart. Make a furrow 6 inches deep and sprinkle 1/2 cup of our complete fertilizer per 10 row feet in the bottom of the furrow. Backfill the furrow and plant the seed 1/4 inch deep. Days to emergence: 2-15. Optimum soil temperature for germination: 40-75°F. Keep the bed uniformly moist. Thin to a distance of 6-12 inches between plants. If transplanting, use 1/2 cup of our complete fertilizer around each plant.
INSECTS: Watch for flea beetles. Cover with Reemay or Grow Guard 20, or spray regularly with Pyrethrin.
SEED SPECS: Approximately 450 seeds per gram.

These came up quickly when I planted them in late July in interior Alaska. I planted them pretty heavily and have been thinning as I harvest. They are a beautiful mix and are adding a great spiciness to my salads. I will plant more next year to sell at our local farmer's market.
