Fun Jen

Fun Jen Chinese Cabbage

(45 days) Open-pollinated. A good lettucy-type Chinese cabbage featuring fast-growing undulating leaves with a slightly wrinkly surface. Semi-loose conical very light yellow-green ruffled 6x10" heads of crunchy texture and very mild delicate flavor somewhat like lettuce. The thick white ribs are tasty with a pleasing light tangy sweetness. Excellent frost resistance but will bolt in heat after standing 2–4 weeks. Stores very well. Seed from Known-You in Taiwan.
