Cultivation: Chinese cabbage prefers cool temperatures for its main growing season. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. In temperate areas sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost or late summer/early fall. Plant year round in tropical areas. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Exposure to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting. Harvest at any stage.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
