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.

Our versatile, easy and popular Asian Greens thrive in cool temperatures, tolerating mild frost. Sow when the danger of heavy frost has passed. Asian Greens appreciate soil with a moderate amount of organic matter dug in. Keep the soil evenly moist for a mild, sweet taste. When growing individuals, thin them to 8" to 10" apart. For ‘baby leaf’ harvesting, lightly broadcast seed, sprinkle with soil and water lightly. As the plants grow to about 3" tall, give them a “haircut” for salads and stir-fries. Feed regularly to enjoy one or two more cuttings from the initial sowing. In cool summer areas, seed at 10 to 14 day intervals, ensuring a steady harvest of fresh, vitamin-rich greens. Hot weather causes hot and/or bitter flavor and bolting. Your last sowing may be toward the end of summer for fall harvest. Protect with shade cloth at the hottest part of summer days if necessary.
