Brassica napus

A versatile and delicious herb with complex flavor.

Norabouna is a land-race crop from Japan, a semi-wild member of the Brassica plant family that sends delicious shoots skyward each spring. These shoots are harvested and prepared like broccoli or kale: steamed, stir-fried, or cooked in soups. The greens can also be eaten at any time of year. The low-demand nature of this versatile crop gained it a reputation in Japan as a food that can stave off famine, but it's also just real good eats. This variety was produced in collaboration with Shumei Natural Agriculture.

This product was grown and processed on our own certified organic farm, Four Fold Farm, in the Hudson Valley of New York State.
