Unique red-hearted Chinese cabbage (or chinese leaves) best grown as an autumn crop for optimum quality. The intense red heart leaves fade to pink at the base making very attractive additions to salads and stir-fries. Fully-formed hearts can be harvested from 75 days.
Sow in individual pots or a seed tray of good seed compost and cover with 6mm (¬ºin) of compost or vermiculite. Maintain a minimum temperature of 15°C (60°F) until germination which will take around 5-7 days. Alternatively, sow thinly directly into a prepared seedbed at a depth of 12mm (¬Ωin) deep, allowing 30cm (12in) between rows.
Transplant when large enough to handle, after about 4 weeks from sowing to 30cm (12in) between rows and 30cm (12in) between plants in the row. Plant firmly and keep well watered until established. Use fleece to protect against caterpillars and aphids as necessary.
