Perfect Bok Choy

And this is why I go to the farmers market personally: to find something as beautiful and exquisite as these perfect little bok choy. These are the miniature variety (bred to be small) of Brassica chinensis known as Shanghai bok choy.

Growers who are focused on maximum revenue don't want to pick anything this young; after all, think of all the money they could make when these gain four times their current weight.
