Product Description

Bushy plants with attractive purple and green leaves. Mild but spicy flavour. Can be used fresh as a salad green or cooked as a leaf vegetable. Great for baby leaves. Good in stir-fries and soups. Will tolerate wet and cold conditions. Sometimes called "Japanese mustard".

Purple Mizuna has a delicate appearance with distinctive bright purple stems and leaf margins deepening with maturity. Ideal for baby leaf, as a cut-and-come-again vegetable or harvested whole.

Mizuna Purple is a striking leafy vegetable from the popular selection of Mustard Greens. It is highly ornamental, with bright purple tones to mid-green, serrated leaves. The purple extends through the leaf up the stem, into the veins and around the deeply serrated edges. The mature height is usually 25cm by 45cm wide, although leaves may be quite loosely bunched. As the plant matures the purple colour intensifies. It has a mild, spicy mustard taste.
