Bok choy is the most popular vegetable in China, where it's been cultivated for more than 5,000 years.

Bok choy is sometimes called a "soup spoon" because of the shape of its leaves.

This member of the cruciferous vegetable family is a type of cabbage that has a mild flavor, making it useful for stir fries, soups, side dishes, or even eating raw.

Bok choy is also referred to as Chinese white cabbage.
