What are the pros? Taste, appearance

What are the cons? Non

Review:

I grow this variety year round on O'ahu and it has become a favorite. My Japanese friends call it 'Wasabi Mizuna' because the taste is definitely reminiscent of the spicy green horseradish paste that is used in Sushi. It's a winner, for sure!

Review:

I liked this mizuna. It grew easily and tasted great. It didn't last quite as long as the lime streaked (one or two weeks less), but otherwise it's great. I plan to keep growing it.

Review:

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

Review:

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.

Review:

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!
