(Diplotaxis tenuifolia ‘Wasabi’)
A compact growing annual with attractive, multi-lobed light green leaves and good cold tolerance.
Cress, Endive, Mizuna, Mustard Greens, Sorrel, Garlic, Chives, Lettuce and Salad Burnett. Use with general salads, asparagus, fish, eggs, ham and cheeses.
Wasabi Salad leaves have a strong mustard flavour very similar to traditional Japanese Wasabi that are best eaten when young. Pick leaves and add to any salad or use as a base under a range of seafood and vegetable dishes. All parts of the plant are edible and the more it is picked the more it will produce. Remove flower stems to increase harvest time.
Prefers moist but well drained soil in a part to full sun position.
Fertilise with Seasol and Powerfeed in spring, summer and autumn.
