YUKINA SAVOY CHINESE CABBAGE (50 days)

A loose leafed cabbage composed of lovely, dark green, crinkled leaves. Young leaves and stalks are excellent for both salads and stir fries. Very easy to grow and productive in most climates.

50 seeds

PLANTING

Germination: 7-12 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-85 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2” deep

Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 2-3 seeds every 12-15” apart for small headed varieties, 20-30” for large headed varieties. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

Starting Indoors:  4-6 weeks before last frost , sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Provide 65-75 degree F soil temperature for optimum germination. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant out just before last frost.

Harvest If the heads feel solid by pushing on them lightly they are ready to harvest. Harvest as soon as possible for early varieties to prevent splitting. Later maturing varieties will hold longer.

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.

Not a heading cabbage! And is a year-around crop

Ergo, your directions are irrelevant.

still producing in January

This is my first year for this cabbage, but it has just survived snow, ice, and six degree temps here in Piedmont North Carolina this January, so I'm very happy with it. I just cut a few leaves from each plant and saute it, sometimes with other greens. I'm sold!

Reminds me of tatsoi.

If you like tatsoi, you will probably like Yukina savoy cabbage, since it grows and tastes like tatsoi. If you aren't familiar with either, the texture is like spinach and the flavor is similar to kale. I add the leaves to salads.The stems can be a bit stringy.

Yukina Savoy Cabbage

Couple of thoughts...Once theses started to grow, I was amazed at how gorgeous they are. Then I realized I had know idea what to do. Do I wait for a head to form, do I harvest the leaves? I'm thinking by the leaf like Swiss Chard, so before I loose all of them that's what I'll be doing. Next year I will definitely plant this cabbage in my perennial garden and let everyone figure out just what it is ! Wonder if I could can this.... Four stars are because I really didn't have any idea how to deal with this cabbage, but will next year.
