  • Deep green leaf blades with white stems that form a light clustered rosette.
  • Very tender with a sweet mustard flavor.
  • Leaves & stems may be eaten raw in salads, stir fried or added to soups.
  • Since Pac Choi is somewhat reminiscent of celery in flavor and texture, it is often used as a replacement in recipes.
