Up to 75-80 days. The Nampa Michihili cabbage is a hardy garden crop that can be grown in climate zones one through nine. The plant produces light green heads on a white stem. After around seventy to eighty days, the heads can be harvested. They provide a subtle, delicate and peppery flavor, and can be kept for three months after harvesting.

This variety of cabbage needs lots of sun, water, and nutrient-filled soil. To grow this plant make sure you have an area with full or partial sun, availability to water them twice a week, and compost to add to your soil. With those three things, the Nampa Michihili Cabbage should thrive! Sow the seeds indoors around a month before the final frost of the season, and transplant them shortly after the final frost. Cover each one with moist soil, leaving one and a half feet between the plants and two feet between the rows. Water them often, with two inches of water each week. When the heads begin to harden, they are ready for harvest. This occurs between 75-80 days, so keep an eye on them. To harvest the heads, do so by removing the entire plant, root and all. This will keep the soil healthy and prevent disease, so that you can continue to grow bountiful harvests. The leaves of the Nampa Michihili cabbage plants can be kept for three months and will bear a mild and peppery flavor.


Sowing: Prepare the soil with compost or organic matter; Chinese cabbage prefers full sun or partial shade, and grow best in temperatures from 45-75 F (7-24 C). Direct seeding works best, about 4-6 weeks before the last average spring frost date. Plant seeds about 12" apart in rows about 12" apart; germination should take place in about 10 days. For a fall crop, direct sow in July.

Growing: Keep the soil evenly moist for the healthiest growth. If the sun gets too hot, Chinese cabbage tends to "bolt" or go to seed; in long periods of heat, some kind of shade may be helpful.

Harvesting: Harvest the entire head when it feels firm but not tough, cutting it off at the surface of the soil. The young leaves that grow from the stump make wonderful salad greens

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
