Cabbage, Chinese- MichihiliCabbage, Chinese- Michi

Best cabbage we have grown, fantastic results, we grew 3 huge heads in a foam broccoli box and can pick leaves as needed. White butterflies ate the kale and collard greens but ignored these. My 3yo grandson picks and eats raw like lettuce.

The Humble Cabbage

Excellent variety for spring rolls and other Asian recipes requiring cabbage. Transplants well but can be grown in situ. Michihili enjoys cooler weather, but will grow all year with shade. Grows strongly and easily. Wonderful texture and flavour. Gregg Jacobson
