Chinese Napa Cabbage
This hybrid Chinese cabbage (Optiko) grows into a large head of beautiful green leaves with a thick, pearly white midrib and a mild cabbage flavor. Also called Napa cabbage, it is typically used for stir-fry, but it is also great raw in salads. Good for fall planting, and also spring and early summer because it is slow to bolt. Grows best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciates it in spring in hot climates. Resistant to fusarium yellows.
