Yorokobi, organic sedds



Low-growing, compact and dense pac choi with slightly light green leaves and wide, white, very brittle stems. It is fast and can withstand several frosty nights in autumn.

Like all standard varieties of pac choi, Yorokobi should not be sown in late spring and summer, as our bright early summer tempts them to flower instead of producing leaves. The harvest is best when sown after July, but it is also great to sow in early spring to get an early harvest in April.

One portion is about 100 seeds.

Cultivation advice


Sow the seeds successively from very early spring until late summer. Sow them thinly, about 1 cm deep directly in the land or in hotbeds and greenhouses for an extra early or late harvest. Seeds sown in mid-July usually yield the best harvest.


Should be thinned out to a mutual distance of 25-35 cm. The thinned out plants are edible. Keep a distance of 35-50 cm between the rows, if you sow in rows.


Start picking the leaves early. The plants grow quickly and harvest the more or less close-knitted heads as they are ready. Several cabbage sorts begin blooming in summer, so do not delay the harvest. They tolerate quite a lot of bitter cold and can be eaten fresh far into the late autumn. Use them raw, boiled, preserved, fried in salads, soups, gratins, and stews etc.


1 g contains 300-500 seeds. For linear sowing 10 g is required to sow 100 metres.
