With its narrow white stems and bright green lacy-edged leaves, this elegant Japanese green has a delicious spicy flavor and a texture similar to arugula, but with a milder taste. As a salad green, Mizuna is best eaten young and can be used as a cut-and-come-again crop, but it is also excellent in stir-fries and soups as plants mature. Harvest leaves as needed or simply pick the whole head. 21 days for baby greens, 40 days for mature heads. ±16,000 seeds/oz.
