‘Bopak’ Bok Choy
In the history of AAS, Bopak F1 is the first Pak Choi to become an AAS Winner.
The tender leaves and crisp sweet stalks are a tasty addition to Oriental recipes or eaten raw. Swap stalks for celery sticks, add to soups and stews, or grill on the barbecue.
Bopak matures about 5 days earlier than other varieties when harvested as a baby Pak Choi but it can be grown to a full-size head as well. Plant every couple of weeks for successive harvests in spring and fall; Bopak retains it’s nice flavor even in warmer weather. The compact, upright, dense plant habit allows for close garden spacing. This classy specimen is great for home gardeners with limited space and makes an attractive “thriller” for patio pots and containers.
Must be planted by spacing each stems of your pot by 2ocm.
To improve growth, surround it with vegetables such as beets, green beans or carrots. Infill culture will also help you maximize garden space.
Celery and thyme help repel cabbage worms. Any type of onion is a good deterrent against maggots, and rosemary, thyme, sage, coriander and capuchins can protect your crop from aphids.
