Care & Harvest

💡Temperature: Prefers cooler temperatures (60-80°F), and will bolt in higher temperatures.

 

✂️ Pruning: Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod. 

 

🔎 Plant Health:Aphids are a common pest, but you can use our prevention tricks to keep pests at bay!

 

🌿 Harvest: For ongoing harvest, snip the outer leaves just above the base of the plant once they reach 5 inches tall to let the inner leaves continue to grow. Leave 1/3 of the plant if you want it to keep growing. To harvest the head all at once, wait until it reaches 6-8 inches tall, then harvest from the base.

Quick Facts

Bok Choy has been cultivated for over 3,500 years and originates from China. Purple Bok Choy is a unique and colorful variant that is also commonly referred to as purple pak choi, Chinese mustard, and spoon cabbage.

Purple Bok Choy is a fast-growing and eye-catching variety with dark purple to maroon leaves with bright green stems. A favorite of chefs, this purple variety has a sweeter flavor than its greener counterparts, and with its neat and uniform growth, it’s the perfect space-filler between larger plants. Purple Bok Choy is packed with vitamins A, C, K, folate, and antioxidants. 

Purple Bok Choy’s sweet flavor makes it a delightfully crunchy and tasty addition to salads, stir-fries, soups, or even grilled whole.
