Napa Cabbage

Napa cabbage is a type of Chinese cabbage like bok choy. It grows in an oblong head with tight pale green to white leaves. Napa cabbage boasts similar health benefits to other cabbages, but tastes a bit milder and sweeter than regular green cabbage.

Napa cabbage may be best known for its use in the Korean dish kimchi, but did you know that the name Napa is actually a Chinese word that roughly translates to “leaf?”

Handling Tips

When shopping, avoid yellowing and brown spots on your napa cabbage. Refrigerate unwashed in a sealed plastic bag between five to seven days. To use, cut the head in half lengthwise and remove the bottom core. Separate and wash leaves, then pat dry.

Rinse Before using
Store at 34-38° F
