How to Grow Chinese Cabbage in Tonawanda, New York, United States of America

There is a lot of confusion when it comes to Chinese cabbage, because most people, in the West specifically, use the name Chinese cabbage to refer to all Oriental brassicas. There are many kinds of Chinese cabbages and they are grouped by whether they are heading type, non-heading type (also called leafy), their shape and size. For example, bok choy (also called pak choi) is a non-heading type of Chinese cabbage. Chinese cabbage probably evolved from accidental natural crossing of early types of Chinese cabbage and turnip in China over 1500 years ago, where it was first cultivated. During the 13th century it was introduced to Korea, but only during the 19th century did it become the most important vegetable in Korea. One of the biggest advantages to growing Chinese cabbage is that this vegetable is among the fastest growing of all leafy vegetables, growing from seed to maturity within 50-60 days roughly, depending on the variety, and is also easy to grow. Chinese cabbage has thinner leaves than your regular cabbage and some describe its flavor as having a mild celery-like flavor (although it is not related to celery). Chinese cabbage is popular for its medicinal qualities. It is also rich in many vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and vital phyto-nutrients.

Use these images to know if your chinese cabbage is heading in the right direction and growing properly. Exact number of growing days varies for each chinese cabbage variety. Below is the average number of days for each stage gathered from many different varieties.

Chinese Cabbage Germination Guide

(Stage 1: Germination)

Germination is the process by which a plant grows from a seed. It is the first stage of the plant growing process and it begins when the seed is sown and ends when the radicale emerges out of the seed.

All seeds require proper soil temperature, moisture, air and light conditions to germinate successfully. However, during the germination stage the seeds require more soil warmth and moisture than light exposure.

Seeds respire just like any other living organism, requiring oxygen and producing carbon dioxide (CO2), so it is crucial to use a soil media that is sufficiently aerated so that the seeds do not “suffocate”.

60% of our growing experts recommend to directly sow chinese cabbage seeds into the ground. What is direct sowing and why do I care about it?

Chinese Cabbage Growing Guide

(Stages 2-5: Growth)

Once seed has germinated and radicale has emerged the second stage of the plant growing process begins, developing from radicale to cotyledon -the embryonic first leaves of the seed forming a young seedling.

During the third stage of plant development cotyledon develops to 3-4 true leaves, stem begins to grow, becoming a mature seedling.

In the fourth stage the mature seedling develops to a young plant, ready for transplanting.

The fifth stage of plant development the plant is fully mature bearing fruit and/or flower.

The following guidelines apply to all of the chinese cabbage plants’ needs during stages 2-5 from radicale emergence to full maturity. During these stages sunlight becomes a more active participant in plant growth and development than in the germination phase.

Soil pH is an important factor during these stages as well. What is pH and why is it important?
