Perilla- Red

I grew The Seed Collection and another brand as a bit of a trial. Both were planted at exactly the same times and the same ways. One batch was directly sown into punnets while another was cold propagated for 5 days first. Both batches of The Seed Collection grew quickly and with an excellent propagation rate. Still waiting for any sign of life from the other company. Fun little experiment that really showed the difference of companies with the same seed type and seeding techniques. Thank you for a wonderful product :)

Perilla- Red

So glad I sewed some of this! 100 percent agree, amazing smokey unique flavor. Great in salads and stired through pesto pasta. It is slow to go to seed and grows quickly and successfully.
