How To Harvest Pak Choi, White Stem Chinese
Cabbage Heirloom Vegetable Seeds
Cabbage are biennials,
and don't flower and produce seed until
the second year of growth.
Wait until the seedpods are tan or brown before collecting them.
Seeds from green, immature pods are not viable.
Place the seedpods in cloth or paper bags
and store at room temperature for one week.
This ensures that they are fully dry.
Lightly crush the seedpods while they are still inside the bag.
Save the seeds and discard the chaff.
Store cabbage seeds away from direct light or heat.
They will remain viable for many years.
