BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica rapa var. chinensis
DESCRIPTION: Green Baby Pak Choy is one of the most popular vegetables grown and sold in the supermarkets on the West Coast and Orient. Also called Shanghai Bok Choy, Ching-Chiang Choy or Ching-Kang Choy in Asia. This fast-growing, cool weather loving vegetable has tender green leaves and crispy green petioles. Mild mustard flavor, juicy crisp texture, easy to grow, harvest and prepare. Cute, too - a good bet (along with nasturtium flowers and raw broccoli sprigs, with dip) for kids who aren't so sure about vegetables.
