Tokyo Bekana (20 days baby, 45 days full size) Brassica rapa (chinensis group) These baby Chinese cabbages may be bunched for market or their ruffled curled leaves cut to add loft and weight to salad mixes. With pale green color and lettucy leaves they look almost like lettuce. Bekana will regrow for multiple cuttings and branch out, giving lots of edible leaves with very little coarse stalk. Lacy and mild, sweet a bit like lettuce but never bitter and makes a good slaw.
Cultivation:
Chinese cabbage prefers cool temperatures for its main growing season. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. In cool areas, sow seeds in late spring after last frost in a sunny location and harvest in early summer through fall. In temperate areas, sow seeds from spring through fall. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Exposure to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting. Harvest at any stage: Young baby leaves for salad mix or harvest the whole plant when fully mature at 10-12" tall. For microgreens, sow seeds in spring to summer in sandy soil in a bright but cool location. Broadcast seeds on soil and cover with a thin layer. Keep uniformly moist. Harvest by cutting when seedlings reach 3-4".
