Michihili Chinese Cabbage

70 days. For many years, Michihili was the semi-heading variety found in small Asian specialty markets in the U.S. This classic 1870 heirloom looks like an elongated, creamy head of Romaine tapering to pale green leaf tips. From 14" to 24" long and just 6" across, its slightly savoyed, ever-so-pale green outer leaves cloak an immaculate white interior, like a treasure awaiting discovery. Its mild, almost sweet, tender yet crisp-crunchy leaves are just delicious~perfect for quick stir-fries, pickled Cabbage and for use fresh and raw in just slightly tangy salads. (OP.)

  • Information
  • Sometimes referred to as Napa Cabbage, or Pe Tsai, this cool weather Asian vegetable is actually more closely related to a Turnip or Rutabaga than to Cabbage. It has been cultivated in the Orient for thousands of years and is more similar to Lettuce in consistency and taste. Direct-seed or use peat pots, as Chinese Cabbages dislike transplanting.

    Average seed life: 3 years.
