There are many herbs in The Renaissance range. Some are essential to any good kitchen, others are a bit exotic and some are special plants for particular cuisines that make up our Premium Collection. This popular Japanese herb is a deciduous understory buds plant. The emerging shoots & flower buds are used in many dishes.
Myoga buds are prized additions to tempura, stir fry and Miso soup. They have a delicate flavor and soft pink color. The young growing stems are also harvested in early spring but it is the young flower buds in mid summer that are the real aim.
