Description

Chinese cabbage - also called Peking cabbage, Japanese cabbage or celery cabbage - is a vegetable plant from the cabbage family. Chinese cabbage forms a firm, oval to narrow cylindrical head weighing about 1-3 kg. Its leaves are mostly yellow-green and have broad, white, slightly curled leaf veins.

China

Growing tips

Chinese cabbage needs deep, loose and nutrient-rich soil. The location should be sunny to semi-shady, and Chinese cabbage also loves wind-protected locations. Unlike other vegetables, it also thrives very well in cooler weather. It is a heavy grower and requires a lot of water. However, take care to avoid waterlogging. This type of cabbage grows best in a temperate climate where humidity is consistently high. As with all cabbages, you should give Chinese cabbage a growing break of 2 to 3 years.
