Introduced in 1948, Michihili is a softer, loose-leaf form of Chinese cabbage with clusters of 8-12” wide white celery-like stalks. It has dense, narrow leaves with wide, flat white ribs. Michihili is a multi-purpose variety. The tender leaves are often used raw as a romaine lettuce would be, in salads or in coleslaw. It can be steamed whole, finely cut into slices for a salad, or cut coarsely for a stir-fry. Cooked leaves and stalks also add flavor to soups, stews and pasta dishes. Excellent for pickling!
