Napa Cabbage, Nozaki Early (Organic)

Brassica rapa. 60-70 days.

A tall napa cabbage with super early heads that are very juicy. The 2-5 lb heads are perfect for kimchi and stir fry. Best covered with row cover to prevent all the other animals in the world from eating them because everybody likes to eat napa cabbage, especially the bugs. Best sown in late summer for fall heading. Most of our late September plant-out headed up in January, even though we should have planted them a month earlier. We’ve also had good luck with early spring plantings, although you need to keep an eye on them so you harvest before they bolt.

Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.

As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested & found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.

Geographical Origin

Sow in pots indoors February through May or August through September. Transplant 3-4 weeks after sprouting. May also be direct sown in early spring or late summer. Hot weather may cause premature bolting and/ or extra spicy flavor. Succession sow to extend harvest. Flowers are edible.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from overwintered or early spring sown plants, selecting for slowest bolting. Cut seed heads when pods are dry, thresh by hand or by dancing, winnow to clean. Isolate from other Brassicas of the same species by ½ mile.
