Purple Shisho (or Perilla) is a favourite among our restaurant customers and has many uses. With delicate leaves and a variety of purple and green colours, the leaves present well but also offer a lingering taste that goes well with fish dishes, especially tuna-based. Leaves are available to order – small or large.
Microgreens are more mature than sprouts but are harvested before reaching full maturity. In the past, they’ve been most commonly used in fine dining restaurants, but are now becoming popular across households and a wider set of restaurants. Studies have found that in general, microgreens have considerably higher levels of vitamins and carotenoids when compared to their mature plant counterparts. This makes them great for many purposes beyond traditional cooking, including diet regimens, and for toddlers and growing children learning about the importance of vegetables and healthy eating.
