Although Bok choy is classified as a cabbage it bears little resemblance to the round European cabbages found in supermarkets across Europe. It’s white stalks resemble celery without the stringiness, while the dark green, crinkly leaves of the most common variety is similar to Romaine lettuce. The Chinese commonly refer to bok choy as pak choi or "white vegetable." Another common name is white cabbage.
Bok choy was introduced to Europe in the 1800's and today can be found in most European supermarkets and green grocers.
