(50 days) Classy open-pollinated pac choi that has stood the tests of time. An old Alf Christianson variety from the days when major companies were breeding and maintaining OPs. Celery-like white stems and vase-shaped 15–18" tall heads are like two vegetables in one with succulent stems and tender greens. Good for kimchi or stir-fries.
