40 days. A traditional variety from the mountainous Kyoto region of Japan. This variety boasts superb cold tolerance, especially during the germination stage, making Early Mizuna well adapted to an early spring sowing. This variety will remain tender, even after several harvests and will not readily go to seed. Harvest as micro, baby or mature greens, and cut-and-come-again up to five times for a super high-quality green. It has long stems that are tender, juicy and dark, as well as nutritious greens.
