Bok choy and napa are two varieties of Chinese cabbage, a member of the same family as broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Resembling a cross between celery and Swiss chard, bok choy has white, celery-like stalks with dark-green, long, rounded leaves. Napa cabbage is
similar in shape and size to romaine lettuce and has white, crisp stalks.As many as 33 varieties of Chinese cabbage exist, each with a different name. The two most common varieties are bok choy (var. chinensis) and napa cabbage (var. pekinensis). Bok choy also is known as pak-choi, qing cai, taisai, chongee, and Chinese mustard cabbage. Baby bok choy
is a variety that grows to a fraction of the size of regular bok choy and is consumed whole. Among its other names, napa cabbage is sometimes called Chinese cabbage, which adds to the confusion among varieties.
