How to Grow Asian Chinese Vegetables
Chinese vegetables were a rare commodity in the U.S., just a few years ago.
They were hard to find in grocery stores, and even rarer still, growing in
the home garden. Chinese and other cultural foods have gained in popularity
in the marketplace. Grocery stores stock an ever increasing variety to meet
the rising demand. Home gardeners have responded, by stocking up on shinese
vegetable seeds, and growing them in their gardens.
We tend to think about and group all Asian vegetables as "Chinese". In actuality,
many originated in other parts of Asia, and are in use around the continent.
There is a wide variety of Chinese vegetables to choose from. They include:
Chinese Cabbage - Bok Choy and Pak Choi
Corn- cute, miniature corn ears found in many Chinese dishes.
Chinese Pea Pods- flat edible pea pods with tiny immature peas inside
And a whole lot more!
Growing instructions vary, depending upon the type of vegetable you are growing.
Many varieties of Chinese vegetables are "baby" types. They are grown similar
to their larger cousins in terms of fertilizer needs, soil conditions, and
insect and disease control. There are also differences in growing techniques,
due to their smaller size. Make sure to read the instructions on the package
when buying the seed for special care instructions.
A wide range of seed companies now include Chinese varieties of vegetables
in their seed offerings.
