Boc Choi question

Post  johnp on 6/9/2016, 8:43 am

I optimistically grow Boc Choi every year and every year it is consumed by bugs before I get to it. This year however I won and was able to get three uses. The plants have now bolted and flowered but are the leaves still good for stir frying? I pulled all the plants up and saved most of the leaves but do not know if they are still good.

stir fry has so many other flavors that I think you could still eat the leaves and not even notice.  if they taste bitter raw you may get a hint of bitterness when cooked. 

I've done several Asian greens and have luck with Toy Choy and Tatsoi.  These are best direct seeded...plants may bolt early when transplanted.  Dipel is needed to protect against the cabbage worms.

Bees love the flowers.

I did cook them last night and they were OK but much stronger flavor than i thought. Anyway they are done for the year and beets are going in today.
