Nancy says: GROW THIS TO MAKE YOUR OWN KIM CHI!!!
A big bed of Chinese Cabbages in the fall means good eating for the winter months. While the cabbage heads themselves are excellent storage crops, they are also the main ingredient in one of the world's most beloved fermented foods: kim chi. Made by salting chinese cabbage until it wilts, then fermenting for a few weeks with ginger, scallions, garlic, and hot peppers, kim chi lasts for months in the refrigerator and enlivens any winter dish. Nozaki is a hard-to-find open-pollinated variety that heads up quickly into small heads with frilly outer leaves."
