These kits feature plants that are tasty to eat and easy to grow. Each kit, packed and tied in the traditional style of Japanese rice bags, includes potting mix, seeds, and instructions. The bags are lined to ensure they are waterproof, and plants can be easily transplanted to larger containers or the garden once established. Choose from four different plants:
Dark Opal Purple Basil is an aromatic, beautiful, and compact basil with leaf colors ranging from green to deep purple. Savory with slight anise and ginger undertones. Use in Italian, Thai, and Vietnamese cooking.
Wasabina Mustard Greens have a spicy wasabi-like flavor. Pick young leaves to use in salads or as a garnish. When mature, eat stir fried or sautéed. Cold tolerant, wasabina thrives in cooler seasons.
Hawk Claw Chili Pepper is a small, intensely hot Japanese chili pepper (called Takanotsume) shaped like a hawk's claw. Use fresh or dried. Dried, ground takanotsume is often used on top of hot udon noodles.
Shiso, also known as Japanese Basil, leaves can be used to wrap sushi or onigiri (rice balls). Chop to garnish salads, pasta, or rice. Dry and use to make tea. Shilo is high in calcium and iron.
