The UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Office is pleased to announce that the October “Plant of the Month” is Chinese Cabbage.
October is a good time to grow Chinese Cabbage in North Central Florida. Napa cabbage offers 11.75% of your daily value of folate, which improves your circulation, red blood cell production, and heart health.
“There are several varieties of Chinese Cabbage that grow well in North Central Florida in the fall and winter garden,” said County Commissioner Mary Alford. “They are ready to harvest in around three months and can be added to soups and stir fry dishes.”
The Plant of the Month program is a collaborative effort between Alachua County Board of County Commissioners, UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County, Alachua County Master Gardener Volunteers, Alachua County Public Library, and Working Food.
