Product Description

Serrated green leaves have a mild but spicy flavour. Can be used fresh as a salad green or cooked as a leaf vegetable. Good in stir-fries and soups. Will tolerate wet and cold conditions. Sometimes called "Japanese mustard".

Good for microgreens and baby leaf production.

Mizuna is an oriental vegetable distinguished by its elegant leafy look and attractive deep green colour. It is associated with the mustard family.

Mostly spotted in mesclun salad mixes, this vegetable is attributed with a kind of mild and exotic mustard-like flavour. It is the young leaves that taste best when used raw, while the older leaves should be lightly cooked.

This plant is adorned by pretty patterned leaves that are light to dark green in colour. These leaves are also identified by a whitish midvein. The leaves more or less resemble fern fronds complimenting a feathery look. The short, slender leaf stalks are white and juicy. The plant cluster reaches a height of about 9 inches with a diameter of approximately 18 inches when fully grown.
