Red Dragon Chinese Cabbage

Brassica rapa
(60 days) F-1 hybrid. When Nikos spied this striking purple-red 10" Chinese cabbage one autumn in the farm-to-table garden of a NY restaurant, she was smitten. Vibrant color and robust flavor make it all-around fabulous in salads, stir-fries and ferments (purple kimchi!) A bit tricky to grow: heads are prone to internal tipburn. Growing instructions included with each packet. Also know as KN-RCC3. 3–4% green off-types.
