  • Care & Harvest

    • Long light periods can encourage bolting, does best when light is adjusted to less than 16 hours.
    • Harvest leaves as they grow to over 4” in length. Cut the individual leaf at their base, or harvest the entire plant by cutting all the leaves at once. Leave at least ⅓ of the plant to continue growing for additional harvests. 
    • Look out for shiny dots on the leaves: thrips love Bok Choy and can be too small to see, but they will announce their presence from the feeding marks they leave behind. If you notice thrips, follow our Pest Control Tips to reduce or eliminate them.

    Quick Facts

    Bok Choy (also called Pac Choi) originates from the Yangtze River Delta in China, where it was bred 3500 years ago from wild Brassicas growing in the region. In Cantonese, “Bok Choy” means “white vegetable”, but it can come in many different colors and sizes. In the 1300s it was imported to Korea, where it was fermented to create delicious kimchi.

    Rich in vitamins A, C, and beta-carotene which can help prevent cell damage from free radicals. Contains selenium which can slow or inhibit tumor growth. Also contains quercetin which can aid in reducing inflammation.

    Add raw Bok Choy to a salad as an accent green, and give a nutritional boost. It’s also popular steamed or added to soups and stir fry.
