Usain Bolt of the seed world

Pak Choi seedling If you’re looking for speedy gratification from outdoor sowing to growing then Pak Choi is your man.  Sown on the 20th June the first signs of life appeared after just 5 days and the second photo is after 10 days.  Baby leaves can be harvested for salads in 30 days or left to mature for use in stir fries or steamed like spinach/chard.  My seed packet promises ‘succulent stems of white and pale green, plus unique purple leaf with bright green stems.  A delicate flavour, rich in vitamins and minerals’.
