At one to three feet tall and only about one foot wide its complicated flavor could become a new favorite without needing too much space. It can also be grown as a microgreen. The flavor is somewhere between mint and basil with hints of anise and cinnamon. It can be used as a sushi wrap, as a garnish or in a fruit or green salad. The purple shiso is used in pickling to add a violet hue. Whether you choose the green or purple, this is a plant that lends itself to culinary creativity. Non-GMO. Full maturity in 60-85 Days. Microgreen harvest between 16 to 22 Days.
