Brassica sp. – Wasabi Leaf (seed)


Rated 0 out of 5
(be the first to review)


Brassica is a genus in the mustard family, Brassicaeae. The genus Brassica is known for its important agricultural and horticultural crops and includes a number of weeds, both of wild taxa and escapees from cultivation. Brassica species and varieties commonly used for food include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, choy sum, rutabaga, turnip and some seeds used in the production of canola oil and the condiment mustard. Over 30 wild species and hybrids are in cultivation, plus numerous cultivars and hybrids of cultivated origin. Most are seasonal plants (annuals or biennials), but some are small shrubs. Brassica plants have been the subject of much scientific interest for their agricultural importance (Wikipedia).

I can literally not remember where I go these seeds from, nor can I find the proper variety or species name. Hence I’ve labelled it Wasabi Leaf for now. A small annual plant with white flowers, all aerial parts have an extremely strong wasabi taste that is really quite nice, almost identical to wasabi (which is also a Brassica).

Care and Cultivation of Brassica sp.

Wasabi Leaf seed can be sown in spring/summer/autumn depending on your climate. Either sow directly in the garden or in punnets. Sow seeds on or just just under the surface of a good seed raising mix and keep moist until germination in 1-2 weeks. They should pop up within a couple of days if the conditions are right.

25+ seeds per packet
