Kogane means gold in Japanese. When mature, the loosehead, fluffy head type, can weigh up to 8 lbs and has a golden yellow core surrounded by crumpled green outer leaves. It has good flavor and is popular for pickling and cooking. Creates a nice contrast with darker greens for microgreens and baby leaf. Best grown in mild climates. Maturity: Approx. 5-7 days microgreens, 70-80 days to maturity
Cultivation: Chinese cabbage prefers cool temperatures for its main growing season. This variety grows well in mild climate areas in full sun. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Exposure to frost or prolonged temperatures below 50°F may result in bolting.
Note: Chinese Cabbage requires vernalization. Bud differentiation and bolting results from low temperatures of 41°F for a week or 50°F for two weeks. For spring harvest, transplant seedlings with 5-7 true leaves raised at 73-75°F during the day and over 53°F at night. Providing plants with adequate water and fertilizer after transplanting will promote faster growth.
