Mizuna, Central Red

(F1) Microgreen Seed

Product ID: 3407M

New! Fast-growing mizuna with color contrast.

Glossy, bright-green leaves with contrasting purple stems and leaf veins. The delicate, serrated mizuna leaves add visual interest and mild mustard flavor to dishes. Faster-growing than our fully-red mizuna micros (Miz America and Red Kingdom). Based on our yield trial, we recommend seeding 9.5 gm per tray at approx. 3 flats per oz of seed. Avg. days to maturity was 12 days when harvested at the first true leaf (as opposed to cotyledon) stage. Nicely complements Mizuna #2883MG, our green mizuna micro, because of the attractive color combination and similar fast growth rate. Compared to Dark Purple Mizuna, which it replaces, Central Red is more uniform with darker-purple stems and leaf veins. Avg. 167,500 seeds/lb.
