Red Mizuna is a sweet and peppery salad vegetable that adds zest to the average green salad. The older leaves can also be used in stir fries if added just prior to serving. The leaves can be harvested all year. The more they are harvested the better they produce and the longer the plant will live.
Prefers moist but well drained soil in a part to full sun position.
Regular applications of Seasol and Powerfeed will keep the plants healthy.
