Last chance to get some of this incredibly flavorful spicy herb from us.

I've never tasted anything like green shiso. It is a popular spice in japanese cuisine, used on rice, tofu, seafood, meats, salads, + popcorn!

The flavor profile is combination of cinnamon, cilantro, parsley, mint, with overtones of cumin.

Green shiso is rich in the following as well: carotene, B1, B2, B6, C, E + K vitamins, as well as calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium + zinc.

Helga taught us to make vinegars with the green and red shisos and now they are a staple in our salad dressings. And if you're a daily vinegar drinker for digestive health, then this is a great way to add in a mineral and flavor boost.

Green shiso is also a stand out addition to specialty tea blends.

Here is a very sweet video on Shiso, left to all from one of our elders and mentors, Joe Hollis of Mountain Gardens in Burnsville, NC.  

We are not growing green shiso this season (2024) so this is your last chance to enjoy this great green herb! Only size available is 2.5 lbs. Very hard to find on the commercial market!
