Tokyo Bekana is a loose-head Chinese cabbage from Japan. The spring-green leaves curl at the edges and mature with slim white stems that widen at the base. Grow baby leaf greens year round with protection from cold temperatures. Popular for micro-greens.
Cultivation: Chinese cabbage prefers cool temperatures for its main growing season. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. In cool areas, sow seeds in late spring after last frost in a sunny location and harvest in early summer through fall. In temperate areas, sow seeds from spring through fall. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Exposure to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting. Harvest at any stage: Young baby leaves for salad mix or harvest the whole plant when fully mature at 10-12" tall. For microgreens, sow seeds in spring to summer in sandy soil in a bright but cool location. Broadcast seeds on soil and cover with a thin layer. Keep uniformly moist. Harvest by cutting when seedlings reach 3-4".
