Kaori Green Shiso

Kaori Green Shiso

(85 days) Perilla frutescens var. crispa Open-pollinated. Highly aromatic and ornamental with frilly serrated leaves. Cinnamony leaves used in sushi and to garnish rice, noodles, soups, pickles or whatever needs a kick of flavor. Think cocktails! A friend waxes poetic about the virtues of shiso: it’s like biting into how a fragrant flower smells. Green shiso was not widely used in Japan until the 1960s.
