Pac Choi is a perfect winter vegetable
This chinese cabbage will grow well planted in July or August and allowed to over winter in mild areas. It grows to about 10 inches and the leaves are mild and thick making them excellent for stir frys or salads while the stalk is thick and a good substitute for celery. The slight mustardy flavor of Pak Choi makes it a delightful addition to stir-fries, soups, noodle and meat dishes, and salads, if the young leaves are used
