Purple Pak Choi (F1 Hybrid, 47 Days)

A favorite in our trials, mostly because the very deep shade of purple really stands out, and it tastes very good. Distinctive purple leaves are carried on light green stems and the flavor is mild.

40 seeds


Brassica rapa var. chinensis

Germination: 7-12 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-75ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-5 weeks before the last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Thin to the strongest seedling. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of the suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before the last frost. Space 6-12" apart. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: Spring when the soil temperature reaches at least 60ºF, 1-2 weeks before the last frost date. Sow 2-3 seeds every 6-12” apart. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. 

How much does a packet plant: 6-8 foot single row

Harvest: Can be harvested by the leaf or the entire heads 

Tips: Needs to be provided with fertile soil, rich in organic matter from the very beginning of its growth in the garden. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture. Temperatures that are consistently hot or multiple days with temperatures under 50ºF may cause bolting.

Lovely plant

I started some of this seed indoors and direct seeded some of it and had good germination both ways. The plant itself is beautiful and it also tastes great in stir fries or even in a salad mix. Will plant this one again for sure.

Purple Pak Choi

I like to grow and sell unusual veggies; this is perfect. It is a real eye catcher in the farmers market.

I only received 22 seeds and I got a 0 % germination rate. Pretty disappointed. i was really looking forward to this variety.

Hi Beth, I'm so sorry that you packet of seeds did not have the correct quantity enclosed, and that they didn't germinate. If you let me know which variety, I'd be happy to replace it for you. Thanks, Pinetree Garden Seeds
