Organic Purple-Mizuna Greens Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Purple-Mizuna Greens seeds take 21 days for baby greens and 40 days for full size maturity. Pretty purple tinged leaves are heavily serrated providing loft to salads. The purple colour will become more pronounced as the plant matures. This easy to grow, nutrient rich green will produce over several weeks when cut and left to regrow. The flavour is mild and refreshing. Slow to bolt.
Direct seed spring through early summer. Will do well in the winter greenhouse from fall sowings. For salad greens, sow seed .6 cm deep in 5-10 cm bands at a rate of 60 seeds per 30 cm. Begin to harvest when plants are 3-5 weeks old. For full size greens, sow in 5 cm. bands at a rate of 15 seeds per 30 cm. Protect plants from flea beetles by covering with floating row cover.
