Napa cabbage is the main ingredient in the most common type of kimchi.
Sometimes in the Korean grocery store, the cabbage will be all wrapped up in plastic.

good bargain at .59 cents. I paid .79 cents today at HMART on Yonge St. I got up at 1:30a.m to open and look at my freshly made Kimchi. I saw 2 bubbles and felt relieved!!!! HAHA….too much fun. I wish my husband cared more about the process but the funny thing is…..
We eat indian food. I am white Canadian and he is imported from India, and now a Canadian citizen. With our dinner last night (indian food) he opened the fridge and started to help himself to a portion of my store bought Kimchi!!!! too funny watching him eat it along indian food…..LOL
I think he is HOOKED….: )
hi i live in israel and i really want to make kimchi but i think this kind of cabbage isn’t available can i another kind of cabbage?
Lucky for you Maangchi has a recipe for Emergency Kimchi which uses regular cabbage – here it is: http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/yangbaechu-kimchi
Wow, those cabbages are huge on the picture:
Napa cabbage is also sometimes called Chinese cabbage or Bok Choy.
Actually, Bok Choy is different than Napa Cabbage. Bok Choy has large white stalks with dark green leaves at tip. Napa has pale green to yellow leaves and tightly bound white stalks.
i can only find green cabbage…will it taste as good?

Yes, they are the same! http://www.agrohaitai.com/leafveg/chinesecabbage/chinese_cabbage_spring.htm
