I recommend this product

tasty grens

I love these greens! They grow pretty well in our dry, hot summers and clay soil. They do die out by mid summer hen it hits the upper ops. Good flavor and they add texture to salads. I have purchased these seeds twice now.

Mizuna Greens

Mizuna is one of the greens in your lettuce mix that germinated and grew in our dry, hot climate, so I hope I will also get good results in a single patch. It has a mild taste and an airy texture that I like adding to my salads.

Love it

I grow mizuna in a self-watering container all year long (indoors in winter under lights). It can take a month or more of repeated cutting before bolting. The mild flavor makes it a great addition to salads, stir-fry, or soup.
