Mizuna is a Japanese cool season salad that has already been cultivated in ancient Japan. It contains mustard oils, therefore it has a slightly similar taste to rocket/arugula. It is said to have a mild, peppery flavor and thanks to its mustard oils also a slight hint of spicyness. We recommend using it in fresh salad, stir-fries and especially Japanese hot pots. Its rich dark green color makes it also a beautiful plant to look at.
