Availability: In stock (4)

A member of the brassica family, Baby Choi bok choy has crisp but tender thick white stems and dark green leaves. Bok choy is definitely a cool season crop and will bolt if grown at the height of summer, so you'll need to plant it as soon as the soil temp reaches 60 degrees or wait until late summer/early fall to plant a fall crop. Baby choi can be harvested early, when only five to six inches tall and wide, or it can be left to reach its maximum size - about 20 inches tall and 12 inches wide.
