What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? not too heat tolerant
This is a great cut and come again green. It tastes great raw but I like to stir fry it w/ garlic and onions. I mulch it heavily and it has done really well this winter.

What are the pros? Perfect for salads
What are the cons? None
I've grown many different kinds of Asian greens, and this is one of our favorites for salads. Quick sprouting like most brassicas, it's best started in late Aug./early Sept. in Virginia. It attracted only a couple of caterpillars and no flea beetles. We like it in our salads which include spinach, arugula, tatsoi, red Russian kale, sorrel, lettuces, and chicories. It's something different, red and "feathery," with a mild flavor especially in cold weather. I think it is milder than arugula. My 12 year-old son likes it and calls it "seaweed." It's a little "stemmy" for cooking.
Currently it is December 7, 2017. We've had frosts since late October, one of which was 19 degrees F, and this green is still growing strong. Some of the leaves are a bit frostbitten and pale, but most are still bright read and of excellent eating quality. Mizuna is one of the first brassicas to go to seed after being exposed to cold, and then warm, temperatures, and so far no plants are flowering.

What are the pros? Flavor, Color, Shape
What are the cons? none
Imagine my surprise -- and smile -- when I weeded the old cattle trough, now a raised bed for lettuce, and among the dandelions I found this gorgeous feathery, wispy, lacey, aubergine-colored lettuce. Must have germinated from last year's efforts. The flavor? WOW! More potent than arugula, delicious. I hurried out there with the rest of my seeds to plant more!

What are the pros? everything about it
What are the cons? nothing
Absolutely loved everything about these plants! Almost every single seeds sprouted, and quickly, too!
They are frilly and pretty as they grow...they taste good... I used them sparingly in salads because I didn't want to use them all up at once ;)
The only POSSIBLE thing I can complain about, is the bugs loved to eat them.

What are the pros? Very pretty, tasty, hardy
If I were teaching children to garden, I would have them plant this mizuna. The feathery red leaves are beautiful and germination is dependable. The taste is cabbagey, as expected. I put this in stir-fries as well as salads. The mizuna is growing in wood board raised beds at my farm. The temperature got down to 16 degrees last week and the mizuna survived with only basic row cover on it.
