Green Shiso Seeds (Perilla) Heirloom Medicinal Herb. Shiso, also known as Perilla or Beefsteak plant, is an excellent addition to the herb garden. Its complex flavor could become a new favorite without much space at one to three feet tall and only about one foot wide. The leaves, rich in calcium and iron, are used for seasoning, coloring, pickling, and garnishing. Shiso leaves can be used whole or cut into strips. Use the flower buds by collecting the seeds to sprinkle on salad and rice at the end of the season. It can also be grown as a microgreen. The flavor is somewhere between Mint and Basil, with hints of Anise and Cinnamon Green perilla leaves are often wrapped around sushi or served with "sashimi" as a garnish. They are added to soups, tempura, or dried and sprinkled over rice, as a garnish, or in a fruit or green salad. Full maturity in 60-85 Days. Micro-green harvest between 16 to 22 Days.

Cold stratify seeds – Perilla seeds need cold weather to break down germination inhibitors. You can place newly sown pots or flats in the refrigerator for 1-3 months or place them outside against a north wall and leave them there until the spring. Keep soil moist. You can also place seeds in a bag and store them in a refrigerator if planted soon.
