Self-Sowing Annual 20 days to baby leaf harvest 50 days to full plant harvest Perilla frutescens

HEIRLOOM Outrageously beautiful and incredibly delicious, shiso is like lemon balm + Thai basil + her own je ne c’est quoi! Shiso’s long, strong stems and showy foliage plus long vase life make it popular in arrangements, as well. Thriving in sun as well as partial shade, shiso is often 3' tall, slightly taller than classic basil. We savor her young leaves in salad and marinades; we also love to roll sushi with her large leaves instead of nori.

At Fruition, we sow shiso indoors in soil blocks four weeks before final frost, transplanting out after final frost with one foot between plants. Our original seed came from one of the most beautiful gardens I’ve ever seen in Olympia, Washington. She is magic!
