Mizuna, Beni Houshi

         
 
13 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? Taste, appearance, vigor

What are the cons? Flea beetles like it

Review:

Very pretty. Even the large leaves (12-15" long) have tender, edible stems. Slight mustard flavor, useful as a salad leaf raw or whole stem sections in stir-fry. It 'bolts" slowly so that you can cut off the flowering stems and eat like brocolli.

Review:

Zone 5, seed sown on May 3, 2019....been harvesting since June 10th. I am growing two other varieties of minus, both have bolted in the 80_85 F temps this past week, but the Beni houshi has not. Very pretty in my bed of greens, delicious in salads and stir fry.

What are the pros? Beautiful, Tasty

What are the cons? Somewhat slow growing

Review:

This mizuna is delicious, has resisted pests, has not bolted in the central valley heat, and looks beautiful in the greens patch next to my mustards. Would highly reccommend for an early spring planting with Purple Lady Bok Choy and Chinese Multicolored Spinach.
