B.C. growers produce a variety of vegetables that are traditionally associated with regions outside of North America. Many of these vegetables are of Asian origin. These crops belong to a range of plant families, including cole crops, legumes and cucurbits. Most crops are short-season crops and are generally grown in small blocks.

Brassica crops grown include Sui choy (Chinese cabbage), Bok choy, Yow choy, Gai lan (Chinese broccoli), and Gai choy (mustard greens). Others include A-Choy (related to lettuce), She dow (snow pea) and Lo Bok (Asian radish).
