This ancient, Asian green, also called pak choi, is just as excellent in a stir fry as in a marinated salad. Harvest at 5"–6" tall in only about 35 days for tender, baby choi. Plants are ideal for growing in containers, make a pretty addition to mixed containers, and resist bolting.

Baby choi!

5 out of 5 stars Jul 11, 2020
Baby choi has been a very versatile crop for us here in MT. We have been enjoying it as early salad treats starting in March. We grew some in smallish pots in an unheated greenhouse just to see and it was great. We have succession planted in the field as well as pots in sun and shade. So far so good! The heat has made it come and go quickly but that has worked out as well.

Germinated fine, but bolted very quickly.

Failed to do much in spring, but will try a fall planting & will follow up with additional review then.

I planted this in the spring and also again in late summer. Both times it went to seed really quickly.

I was interested in trying new greens, and the Baby Bok Choy seemed like something to try. I planted the greens in a raised garden bed with a 50% shade cover. This REALLY helped, as the bed is in a spot that gets full sun all day. I had Bok Choy from June to August. I could have planted again in August, but didn't have time. I will try that again in 2022!

Planted these in October in zone 10 and they grew fast and loved the cool rainy weather. They got to a foot tall in less than 60 days. Still yummy even though I had intended to harvest them at half this size. No bolting.
