BOK CHOY – WHITE STEM

Bok Choy - White Stem Heirloom (white mustard or pak choy)1

It is always fun to have a surprise in the garden and last year we had one when we decided to try an heirloom variety of Bok Choy called white stem from Botanical Interests. We were not sure how it would do here in our climate and soil and to our surprise it turned out to be one of our best early season crops.

The leaves were so beautiful and glossy and tasted wonderful !!

If you don’t know how to cook or eat┬ábok choy here is a youtube video from chef Jarod on how to prepare it.

This white stem variety is an heirloom so at the end of the season we were able to save the seeds.

The pictures here below are when the plants were bolting in our garden and going to seed, the seed pods were then dried and the seeds saved in small jars for this years season.

A few weeks ago I planted a few of these seeds to see how they would do and they are growing fine so today April 19, 2015 we are going to get a row planted.

We will be updating this page and sharing pictures as they grow and what we harvest. So follow along !
