Shiso Herb Seed Duo

2 Individual Seed Packets


Description

Remarkable foliage. Unusual flavor. A potential for combating a devastating virus, and for preventing food poisoning. Perilla frutescens is gaining traction among North American herb gardeners, especially as we embrace Chinese herbal medicine and Asian cuisine.

There are two varieties of shiso, as it's called in Japan: Those with purplish-red leaves, and those with medium green foliage. Both are similar in growth habits and cultivation and only slightly differ in flavor and aroma.

Shiso is a member of the mint family, most closely related to basil, but don't confuse red shiso with opal basil, which shares its coloring.
