Pak Choi – Hanakan

£4.99

Delicious and versatile
Great to grow if you enjoy stir-fries and Asian dishes. Pak Choi is best planted in a shady spot to prevent it from bolting in the sun. Keep it well watered too. Other than that it is very easy to grow.

Number of plants: 10

Variety: Hanakan (organic*)

In the kitchen: Pak Choi can be grown and used as baby leaves in salads or stir-fries. These plants can also be grown on to produce mature pak choi for steaming as a whole plant, which is really yummy.

Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery in Spring 2021. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in spring approx 15cm apart in planters, raised beds, pots, containers or grow bags.

When to harvest: Start cutting the salad leaves when the plants reach about 10cm high. Clip the leaves with scissors, and the plants will re-grow and can be trimmed several times.
