HEIRLOOM Think lemon balm + Thai basil on a leaf that looks like purple, fringed basil: outrageously beautiful, incredibly delicious! (You may recognize its leaf and flavor from fine Japanese restaurants who sometimes replace nori with Shiso for certain rolls and sashimi.)

Organic Plum Shiso HEIRLOOM Think lemon balm + Thai basil on a leaf that looks like purple, fringed basil: outrageously beautiful, incredibly delicious! (You may recognize its leaf and flavor from fine Japanese restaurants who sometimes replace nori with Shiso for certain rolls and sashimi.) A readily re-seeding annual, Shiso may 2-4’ tall or more, depending on fertility. It's long, strong stems, showy foliage and long vase life make it popular for cutting, as well. Our original seed came from one of the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen in Olympia, Washington. And it is magic.

20 days to baby leaf

5 of 5 This is the best shisho I have found in the US August 6, 2020
Reviewer: E MacInnis from Providence , RI United States  
These shiso seeds produced the most flavorful red shiso leaves I have had in a long time.  I lived in Asia for 30 years, and know what shiso should taste like at its best.   These seeds produce the best - look no further.

Reviewer: Pat LaPoint from PAVILION, NY United States  
This was an experiment on my part, had no idea what to do with it, other than I knew I could use it in flower arrangements, which I did.  Did not like using it in food.
