This is a red hybrid Chinese Cabbage that everyone has been talking about. Exterior leaves are pink color and interior leaves are red-purple. The color is not as dark as RCC9. This variety is medium bolting and is prone to internal tipburn (decay of inner leaves). There is approximately 3% green Chinese cabbage off type.
Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well drained soil that is slightly acidic. Plant in full sun after last frost. Prefers cooler temperatures and best transplanted in early spring or late summer/early fall. Exposing plants to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting.
Note: Chinese Cabbage requires vernalization. Bud differentiation and bolting results from low temperatures of 41°F for a week or 50°F for two weeks. For spring harvest, transplant seedlings with 5-7 true leaves raised at 73-75°F during the day and over 53°F at night. Providing plants with adequate water and fertilizer after transplanting will promote faster growth.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
