Product Overview

Perilla frutescens

You'll soon be hooked on the intoxicating flavor! A refreshing substitute in basil pesto; try it tossed with rice noodles. Recipe inside packet.

An absolute must for herb gardens! Also called Japanese basil or beefsteak plant, shiso's incredible flavor can be described as a combination of cinnamon, mint, and clove with overtones of cumin. A beautiful, heat- and drought-tolerant bedding plant that attracts pollinators, and is excellent for containers. This packet provides 75% green shiso and 25% red.
