An immensely popular Asian Green, Mizuna has attractive rosettes of narrow, dark glossy-green leaves that are deeply serrated and fringed. This easy-to-grow gem grows very quickly and has a mild sweet flavor with a slight mustard tang. #1 in mesclun salad mixes, it is tolerant of most weather conditions including the cold~even snow! It may be harvested as a baby leaf, but if larger plants are desired, thin them to 8" apart and enjoy their mature symmetrical form that is pretty enough for inclusion in decorative flower gardens.
Average seed life: 3 years.
