Certified Organic Seed
Beautiful, deeply serrated green leaves.
Mizuna is highly versatile, performing equally well as a salad green (it can easily make up to 50% of a salad before becoming overpowering) and as a standout in cooked dishes, where it is delicious stir-fried or quick-pickled. It is fast-growing and relatively untroubled by pests, as long as it is sown after the flea beetle feasts of late spring. (For early Mizuna, consider using some row cover.)

Mizuna is usually ready for harvest in about six weeks from sowing. Sow under protection 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant 3 weeks before last frost. Sow successively. Fall crops are most successful: sow July-August. Spring-sown crops must be harvested young to beat bolting; they also may need row cover to protect against flea beetle damage. All Asian mustards will overwinter with protection and give delicious greens through January, at least.
