Shungiku Small Leaf

  • Botanical Name: Chrysanthemum coronarium

Highly valued in Oriental cooking, this herb with small leaved, dark green serrated leaves tastes the way Chrysanthemums smell.  Combine the young shoots with other vegetables in stir-fry dishes, boil or steam very briefly, like Spinach and add to Bean sprouts.  Sow in open ground and harvest when 10-12cm high.  Repeat sowings every 2-3 weeks will ensure a constant supply of fresh young shoots.

Matures 75 days from direct sowing.
