Chinese cabbage is almost a novelty in the kitchen - you can use it a lot like normal cabbage, but of course it's best in Chinese cooking - stir fries, kimchi, or sauteed.
Planting Time: Mid MAR or Late JUL (in central Maryland)
Harvest Time: (in central Maryland)
I'm learning about growing Chinese cabbage still. I've tried to grow michihili in the spring and failed miserably - the cabbage bolted at the first hint of heat, which sometimes comes early here in Maryland.
Treat like other brassicas - they like nitrogen.
I imagine you can freeze it in small, blanched chunks. I have never tried.
Matt's Garden Notes:
2013: Tried 6 michihili cabbage in spring, sowed roughly March 20th. kept thinned, but bolted very quickly. Am trying michihili and Qingdao in the fall. Planted those July 28 in my northernmost raised bed, Michihili in the southern 8' row, Qingdao in the middle.
