Pac Choi (Bok Choy) - Key Growing Information

A head of 'Asian Delight' pac choi, grown to full-size, with broad, light-green petioles and dark-green, oval leaves.
CULTURE: Sow from early spring through midsummer. In the South, pac choi is well adapted for fall plantings. Suitable for fall sowing in mild climates or in a high tunnel or other protected structure in colder climates. Premature bolting of seedlings may occur if temperatures drop below 50°F (10°C), especially over multiple nights. Cold temperatures generally do not cause bolting of plants past the seedling stage.
DAYS TO MATURITY: From emergence after direct seeding.
DIRECT SEEDING: Sow 15 seeds/ft., 1/4" deep in rows 12-18" apart. Thin plants as recommended in our Pac Choi Comparison Chart. For baby-leaf production of 'Rosie', the only pac choi we recommend for baby leaf, see the Baby-Leaf Brassica Greens culture.
INSECT PESTS: Flea beetles can be controlled by covering with floating row covers from day of sowing.
HARVEST: Harvest before flowering.
