Mitsuba (Cryptotaenia japonica)

Mitsuba (Cryptotaenia japonica) Japanese Parsley

Description

Sometimes called Japanese parsley, this wonderful herb is more subtle than the parsley we’re used to here at home. It’s sweeter, with more of a cilantro vibe happening, but not too sweet; it’s actually more reminiscent of shiso (perilla), the garnish most commonly used with sushi platters in Japan. Mitsuba prefers moist, shady conditions. A wonderful addition to any recipe calling for cilantro, or parsley, or celery leaf; it’s the best of all three!
