More Details

Mizuna is a slightly spicy, Japanese green that is one of my favourite bulk leaves for spring, autumn and winter salads. With sharply serrated, bright green leaves Mizuna looks lovely in the salad bowl. An essential 'desert island plant' in my garden.

Group japonica
Type Hardy Annual
Common Name Mizuna, Japanese Greens
Soil Type Acid, Chalky, Sandy, Fertile, Alkaline, Clay, Neutral
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height Best cropped at 10cm (4in), but will grow to twice the size.
Spacing 10-15cm (4-6in) for cut-and-come-again salad, 20cm (8in) for whole plant for stir-fry.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting February-April and August-October. Direct sow in lines or blocks, or under cover for winter cropping.
Care Tips Remove any caterpillars lurking on the leaves. Perfect for undercropping sweetcorn or broccoli. Can be grown in container pots.
Harvesting March-May and August-March, 4-6 weeks from sowing. Cut above bottom set of leaves so plant can continue to grow. Leaves will produce for 2-3 months per sowing. Keep picking regularly to prevent flowers running to seed.
Cooking Notes Like all salad leaves, immerse the leaves in cold water for five minutes after picking to plump them up.
