Description

Mizuna are attractive dark green leaves on long white stems.You can use them uncooked in salads or add to a stir-fry. It has a bitter peppery sort of taste to it.


Grow your own tasty colourful salad leaves which are packed full of nutrients. There is nothing quite as special and rewarding as going out to your own garden and selecting home grown produce to use in your meals.


The interest in what we have classed liberally as “Oriental Vegetables” increases every year. They can be used raw in salads, or lightly cooked for use in stir frys and numerous Chinese style meals. We hope you will be tempted to give something different a try.
