Chinese White Cabbage has flat, dark, dull-green leaves on white stalks that are very thick, wide and prominent at the bottom. The leaves have a slightly mustardy taste.
There are many different varieties sold under many different names. Some varieties only grow about 6 inches (15 cm) tall. The better-known Bok Choy is a variety of Chinese White Cabbage.
Some of the outer leaves may be tough. Take the cabbage apart leaf by leaf, wash the leaves and drain.
Sliced thinly, the stalks can even be eaten raw.
