MIZUNA’S jagged leaves are often found in supermarket green salads. They’ve got a
mustard flavour while the smooth-edged leaves of the similarly named mibuna have
a more peppery taste. You can sow mizuna along with mibuna and rocket in a sunny
windowbox to use as cut-and-come-again baby salad leaves or grow them in the garden
on their own to harvest as a leaf to add to stir-frys.
Like the winter cabbage that I drew yesterday, this potted seedling has been growing
in the greenhouse without any attention for the last month or two.
