Pak Choi 'Dwarf Canton White' is a high yielding variety that has a compact habit.
Can be harvested young as 'baby leaf' or left to mature to thick succulent white stems great in stir fries.
Pak Choi is easy to grow, but can be prone to bolting in hot weather so it’s a good idea to grow it in partial shade and keep it well watered. Pak Choi is hardier than many other leafy crops, so late sowings will crop in autumn and even winter, if given a little protection with a cloche or some fleece.
