Mizuna, Beni Houshi

Benihoushi Mizuna is a new, vibrant twist on an ancient crop, and the bright purple stems set it apart from any other mizuna. The succulent stems are rich in anthocyanin, the same powerful purple antioxidant present in blueberries. This recently developed open-pollinated variety has been making a splash on the high-end culinary scene in Japan. The greens are excellent raw in salads; the purple stems and dark greens make a lovely contrast, and the delicate flavor is unparalleled. Mizuna is well adapted to both heat and cold extremes and is suitable for several harvests, in fact becoming more tasty and cool-adapted with each successive cutting.

Review:

i got this a something new to try in the garden this year and planted one packet. they all came up and made more greens than i could keep up with eating by myself. tender and mild tasting. i had no bug problems (note on that: it was planted with onions between the double row) i wish it had seeded more but worth buying more for this fall.

What are the pros? Speed, heat tolerance, flavor

What are the cons? aphids

Review:

I planted these around February 3rd and they're still alive and producing. They haven't tried to bolt even once, and I just keep cutting the bunch back. Even though watered daily, in 90-95 degree weather without shade cloth, the plants would flatten to the ground from the intensity of our cloudless Phoenix sun so I constructed a bamboo shade structure and made burlap curtains for my veggie garden. Now they are happy even in 105 degree sun. Additionally, an aphid infestation didn't appear to slow down the growth, but to help control the aphids, I harvested the bunch, put it in a ziplock bag, shook with soapy water until they were all dead, and then rinsed well. I'm enjoying the reliability of this crop so much that I just bought and planted more. Slight mustard flavor, useful as a salad green (main green or a minor component).

Review:

This was the first year I've grown mizuna; I got the seeds from Baker's as an experiment. But from here on, Beni Houshi Muzuna will become a staple of my garden. I can't believe how quickly the plants matured and how uneventful they were to grow, even in an unusually cold and dry spring. Every seed germinated and produced huge, harvestable leaves in about a month here in Zone 5B. The greens are delicious fresh from the garden, gorgeous on the plate, and the plants are really pretty to look at in the garden. Thank you for introducing me to mizuna, Baker Creek!

Review:

This is an absolutely wonderful mitzuma. It is sweeter than the others I’ve tried, and more beautiful on the plate. I seeded it in January, put it out in February and have been enjoying it ever since. We garden year round and I thought why not try a few months early and it has performed beautifully. I covered it twice when the weather sioped down into the teens, but I believe it would have been fine without any protection. We primarily eat it raw, but a brief heat would also be fine. I i tend to overwinter this and grow it into 5e spring drom now on.

Incredible -- every seed germinated quickly and even the seedlings had fantastic, bright magenta coloring! I only wish there were more seeds in the packet, especially for the price.
