Beni Houshi mizuna is a new, vibrant twist on an ancient crop, and the bright purple stems set it apart from 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 cool and warm weather and is suitable for several harvests. Versatile for mixed greens, perfect for restaurants from Japanese fusion to classic American. A standard on our farm and used almost daily in our kitchen.
