Half Hardy Annual
Description – A new distinctive taste to a salad favourite with the unique warm flavour of the wasabi root in a quick and easy to grow salad leaf. For the best flavour sow every 2-3 weeks for freshest leaves. Adds a kick to salads, sandwiches and sushi, or use it with any dish that requires horseradish or wasabi paste. You will be amazed at how much flavour is packed into each leaf.
Sowing – Sow very thinly, 13mm (½in) deep in drills 45cm (18in) apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 15cm (6in) apart and use as baby leaves. Must be kept well watered or will run to seed and be inedible.
Growing – Harvest young leaves as required, picking only a few from each plant. Pinch out flower buds to prolong cropping. Sowings made in late summer will carry on cropping into winter if given protection by cloches.
Harvest – May to August
