Matsushima Chinese Ca... VGR-3675



Easy-to-grow barrel-head type

for late summer and fall planting.

Mild flavor, crunchy texture, like an "iceberg" cabbage.

Likes decreasing temperatures and day lengths, and tends to bolt if temperature or light increases.

Delicious fall salad green, very juicy, as well as for soups, steaming, stir-fry, and making kim-chee.

Fastest header we trailed-can be started later than broccoli and still get a crop.

BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica rapa chinensis


Start in flats or direct-sow in late summer-early fall; transplant to 15" centers. Provide adequate moisture, fertility, and lime if needed. Difficult spring crop except in southern latitudes, but easy in late summer-fall. Surprisingly cold-hardy, and will survive quite cold winters if given protection. Sow in succession, unless wanted all at once for kimchee or for sale. Slugs love it-be sure to patrol often, use bait, or edge beds with copper.
