Misome hybrids are a cross between another winter favourite Japanese komatsuna mustard ( B rapa subsp. nipposinica var pervidis) and pak choi ( B rapa subsp chinensis).
This new addition has a more upright habit and dark green, glossy, crinkly leaves. It will grow in any season and is suitable for stir-fries, salads and pickling. The flavour is stronger than either mibuna or mizuna, however young leaves are still mild enough to add to salads.
