About Napa Cabbage

Napa cabbage is the most popular of the family of Chinese cabbages seen in the supermarkets of the West and Orient. When matured, the plant forms a head with leaves and petioles. This head-forming vegetable is very tender and delicious whether eaten raw, in salads, or cooked.  It is also the least nutritious of  the Chinese cabbages.  We could not find the nutritional data for the raw vegetable, but the nutrition chart for cooked napa is below.  Compare this chart with that of bok choy to see the differences.
