Mizuna, Beni Houshi

         
 
8 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Beni Houshi 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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Aphids also like to eat

Review:

Grew a few in the garden beds and a few in 25 gallon contains. I grew 3 to a container, and the plants looked very different to the ones in the ground. I'm assuming due to spacing, the ones in the containers had smaller leaves, but more of them (like a frizzy bush). I liked eating the smaller leaves better, so this year I'll only grow them in containers. They did become infested with mealy aphids, and since I grow them during the winter, there were't a lot of beneficial around to help me out. Taste was hereby and sometimes a little strong. Ate them fresh in salads and dropped a handful in soups, instant noodles, and stir fries. Overall good, and will grow again.

What are the pros? Grows fast, not bitter

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I live in the humid Florida heat so it's hard getting greens to not be bitter during summer. This grows quickly and doesn't get bitter for me in my Tower Garden. Great for Salad or eating straight out of the garden.

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!
