Cultivation: This variety is bred for spring to early summer harvest in areas where bolting is a problem. It also grows well as a late summer to early winter crop. Prepare fertile, well drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after last frost or late summer/early fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. 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.
