Growing Chinese Cabbage: Indoor or Outdoor?


Abstract. Chinese cabbage (Brassica campestris var. pekinensis (Lour.) Olson) is a vegetable which can be cultivated with success in Transylvanian Tableland specific conditions. Even if in our country it is considered a rare vegetable, probably because it is cultivated only by amateur gardeners, or is imported from other countries, it is appreciated by those who ate this tasteful vegetable. An other problem is the price of Chinese cabbage, which is five or six time higher than the white headed cabbage price. The present research took place, in 2011, on the experimental field which belongs to the Vegetable Growing Department from the Faculty of Horticulture from the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine from Cluj-Napoca, in the spring. Five cultivars of Chinese cabbage were used to see if this almost unknown vegetable from our country can be cultivated with better results in open field or in protected culture. The experiments results showed that this type of cabbage can be cultivated with maximum success in protected areas, such as greenhouses or polyethylene tunnels. Even if the price of culture establishment is higher in case of the protected culture, the higher quality of the final products and the higher yield make these cultures more profitable ones compared with the open field cultures
