Asian Veggies

This year I am growing a variety of Asian Vegetables. Last year I attempted growing Bok Choy and Chinese (Napa) Cabbage. They were both attacked by slugs, flea beetles or they bolted. This year I plan on using floating row covers and heat resistant varieties. I already started my Chinese Cabbage indoors and I will be transplanting them this weekend into the garden. I also plan on sowing seeds for the other Asian Veggies this weekend. These are the varieties I will be growing this year:

Soloist Chinese Cabbage
Bilko Chinese Cabbage
Michihili Cabbage (Fall crop)
Pechay Bok Choy
Chinese Kale
Choy Sum
Chinese Leek Flowering
Purple Pak Choi (Fall crop)
Malabar Spinach Red Vine

These are my Chinese Cabbage seedlings.


  1. We started growing brassica rapa, AKA asian veggies last year in earnest. They are great! They handle the cold like broccoli and cabbage, and grow twice as fast! I hope you have tons of success!

    1. Thanks Jody! I am looking forward to giving them a try. I just hope they don't bolt on me, but I plan on growing some again this fall.
