Bok Choy

Also known as “Chinese Cabbage,” Bok Choy has quickly become a favorite in the West for stir fries, soups, salads and many other dishes. And why not? Its delicate flavor makes it great for anything from sautéed dishes to coleslaw. On the farm, we plant our Bok Choy crop in the early spring while the weather is cool, so it can be harvested before the warmth of summer, when it’s freshest.
