Pak Choi Red Choi

Brassica rapa

Dark red leaves with green undersides define this hybrid pak choi. Petioles are light green when fully mature. It tastes great. Add color to a microgreens blend, eat mature leaves,  or let this semi-headind variety form a full head. This plant is rich in iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin K. Compounds such as iron and zinc are known to help to boost collagen production. It is also good for bone structure and strength.

Our favorite way to plant pak choi-
-when soil temperature is in the 60's, for each row, draw a line in the soil with your finger, 1/2 to 3/4 inches deep, the entire length of the row. Sprinkle in the seeds so they fall about 1/2 to 2 inches apart. Then cover and pat the soil. As the sprouts grow, harvest out entire baby plants, so that none are crowding eachother. It will be approximately every other plant per week until you achieve proper plant spacing of 9-12 inches apart. At that time, let them grow into their full pak choi heads. This way, you get to eat baby pak choi almost the entire time the plants are growing, instead of waiting for individual plants to get there full size.

Please note that expedited shipping options like Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air only affect the transit time once your order leaves our facility, not the preparation time.

Pickup Orders
Pickup orders are typically ready within 2-4 days. If you require it sooner, please let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate you. For bagged soil pickup orders, please refer to the details below. Once your pickup order is ready, we will contact you (usually by text) to schedule a 2-hour pickup appointment window. Pickup times are available 7 days a week, between 7 am and 9 pm. Your order will be placed under the brown tent in front of our location at 7409 N Highland Ave Tampa, FL 33604, for easy pickup.

Live Plants
For out-of-state orders, we ship on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Florida orders are shipped on Mondays or Tuesdays. If you place an out-of-state order on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, it will likely be shipped the following Tuesday or Wednesday. Florida orders placed on Sunday or Monday may be shipped the following week. We schedule shipments this way to ensure that live plants don't travel over the weekend, minimizing any potential damage.

Seed Orders
Our seed packets are prepared over the weekend. Orders consisting only of seeds are shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Bulk Soil
After you place your order, we will contact you to arrange the soil delivery. Please note that our trailer or dump truck is large and heavy, with a limited turning radius. We cannot be held responsible for any damage within 1.5 ft of the edge of the driveway or the designated delivery area. If there are plants, grass, artificial turf, sprinkler heads, or any other items within 1.5 ft of the edge, they may be damaged. We are not liable for any damage unless it is due to gross driver negligence. Driveway surfaces (concrete, shell, pavers, turf, etc.) and anything within 1.5 ft of the drive may experience cracking, splitting, breaking, depressions, tracks, etc. Please be aware that large item deliveries carry inherent risks. If the driver determines that it is unsafe to dump the soil in your desired location, they will either choose a safe alternative or the soil will not be delivered, but the delivery fee will still apply.

Bagged Soil
We fill bagged soil orders every Wednesday. If your order is placed after 4 pm on Tuesday, it will be filled on the following Wednesday. Once your bags of soil are ready, we will follow the regular pickup protocol mentioned above.
