I sowed Wong Bok seeds in March, April and May (autumn). Germination was near 100% and grow very fast. So I thought that it was a suitable time to grow wong bok. After 3 months our wong bok did not show any sign of leaves developing firm compact head but the leaves were lying flat towards the ground. We even tie the leaves together to make it shape like a barrel. All of them bolted. We have about 5 plants left growing in the patch which has not flower yet but I reckon it will bolt too.
This chili plant has survive Adelaide winter and produce fruit through the whole cold season as well. This chili plant is snuggle between broccoli plant that protected it from the cold harsh wind and growing in the patch that received the most sunlight in the day.
Will try again this spring with wong bok….
Any tips growing them?
