Cultivation & harvest

The cabbage vegetable is grown in a sunny to semi-shady location in temperate areas. The soil should be particularly nutrient-rich, loose and calcareous for this.


The combination of pak choi, onion, garlic and ginger finished with a little vegetable stock makes a wonderful stir-fry. Simply cut off the ends of the roots, wash them and cut into halves or quarters.


Pak choi is best stored in the fridge. Preferably wrapped in a damp towel.
