Description

A slightly spicy Japanese green that is one of my favourite bulk leaves for spring, autumn and winter salads. Its sharply serrated, bright green leaves look lovely in the salad bowl. An essential 'desert island plant' in my garden that I grow almost all year round.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Remove any caterpillars lurking on the leaves. Perfect for undercropping sweetcorn or broccoli. Can be grown in container pots.
