An eye catching reddish-purple top leaf contrasts with the green undersides and the bright green stems. The purplish colour of Pak Choi Purple F1 is enhanced by cooler autumn weather. Pak Choi Purple F1 is ready to harvest in 30 days from sowing as 'baby leaf' or 45-70 days as semi-mature to full size heads. Earlier and later sowings for 'baby leaf' can be made under cloches or fleece.
Companion planting: Try growing Pak Choi with mint to help deter flea beetles.
Thin to 10cm (4in) for 'baby leaf', to 20cm (8in) for larger plants and to 30cm (12in) for fully mature plants.
