Matsushima chinese cabbage

Brassica rapa Chinensis
HOW TO GROW CHINESE CABBAGE

Prefers cool temperatures for its main growing season, likes decreasing temperatures and day lengths. Tends to bolt if temperature or light increases. The optimum temperature for Chinese cabbage to be able to head is at least 58- 62˚ƒ. The Plants must become big enough to be ready to form a head within 40–50 days after sowing. Transplant 16 weeks before first frost for storage types, 13 weeks for fresh types, without additional protection. In a hoophouse, you can plant 2-3 weeks later. Drought sensitive, mature heads are vulnerable to splitting under stress from rain following a dry spell, keep moisture even. Fragile leaves when young, space well if mechanically cultivating. Harvest time is fall to early winter. Mature when the tight head leaf begins to fold back on itself. Soil pH 6–7.5. Hardiness zones 5-9. Biennial.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 8,000–11,000 seeds per ounce. Average 66M seeds per acre. Federal germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 4 years.
