Beautiful17 September 2016Good germination rate and beautiful leaves. Somehow some wild animals like them too...
ExcellentBy: Nathan Kilah on 10 May 2016We had great success with these seeds. The younger leaves were great in salads, while the more mature worked great in stir frys and lactofermented (mizuna kimchi!). Definitely a keeper in our vege patch!

AmazingBy: customer review from 7/12/2015 on 22 March 2016This is my favourite of all greens to grow. I had never heard of Mizuna but thought I would purchase the seeds and give it a go. It grew like wild fire, tastes fantastic, peppery and great for salads, sandwiches or even cooking. Its summer now so I cant grow it but all other months I have been enjoying it. I had so much from a few plants that I have been giving it to neighbours and family who all wanted to know more about it as they really enjoyed it too. A++++++++ : )
