Also known as Green Perilla and Aojiso.

A unique flavour that adds authenticity to so many Japanese dishes.


These vibrant green leaves impart notes of mint, basil, cinnamon and citrus, delivered with a slight tingle on the tongue. It’s not an easy taste to categorise but one that becomes quite addictive once tried. Often used as a garnish for sashimi, especially tuna, shredded in salads or steamed and served hot. So many Japanese and Korean recipes call for this herb that are sure to find a use, even if you devise your own.

    • Transfer to free draining soil in full after last frost
