In salads, stir-fries, wraps, kimchi, spring rolls and slaw: We just love Organic Sativa Chinese Napa Cabbage! So many varieties well-adapted for short seasons are F1 Hybrids and we were thrilled when this open-pollinated napa cabbage was shared with us. We grow several successions of napa cabbage in every season though clearly she thrives in the cool of spring and fall. In spring, your harvest will be that much quicker as well as flea beetle-free when you grow napa cabbage — and any brassica — under hoops and floating row cover.
