Mizuna Mustard - The Asian Green With Flair
Mizuna is a hardy annual that produces 8-15" high slender white stalks topped with rosettes of thick, deeply-cut green leaves. A wonderful "cut-and-come-again" variety.
This Japanese heirloom is a cool-season crop and should be started in early spring or late summer. Slow to bolt, extending the season nicely for both short and long growing climates.
Mustard traveled from Central Asia and the Himalayas, from where it spread to India, the Caucasus and the Orient. In China, numerous types were developed as green vegetables and as a spice.
Mustard's can be cooked or stir-fried or just eaten fresh. Very rich in minerals and vitamins A and C. Harvest young for best flavors.
