Japanese Shiso Basil Seeds
For those short on outdoor space, some seeds to grow your own edible plants indoors. ‘Indoor-ables’, as we like to call them. Harvest your own Aojiso aka Japanese Basil.
The Japanese use these fragrant, iron-rich leaves as a garnish for cold noodle and tofu dishes when young, and when mature to wrap onigiri (rice balls), fried in tempura batter as a crispy side dish or even as a pizza topping.
It’s almost impossible to buy this seasoning fresh in Europe and it’ll add some authentic Japanese flavour to sushi, salads, curries and stir fries.
Wrapped and tied in the style of a traditional Japanese rice bag, the growing kit includes potting mix, seeds and instructions, ready to go. Start to grow inside the bag and once established, the plant can be easily transplanted to larger pots or to the garden. Just requires a little patience and a lot of love.
