This is a slow-bolting edible rape, alightly later maturity than the 70 Days. Plants are grown mainly for young leaves and stems. This variety is strongly resistant to low temperature, suitable for fall/winter crop. Plants produce oblong-shaped dark green leaves with thick main stems and many side shoots, excellent for stir-fry with meat. One of the very popular vegetables for the fall/winter season in Southern China and Asia.
