Shiso (Perilla), Purple (annual)

Perilla frutescens purpurea

It’s Shizo time! This Japanese traditional spice found its way to our local cuisine. The beautiful, 100-cm high plant shows off purple leaves with pink flowers. It delights the eyes as an ornament in the garden and then surprises the taste buds with its exotic flavour. The leaves are sliced just before serving with soup, pasta, rice, or stir-fried vegetables.
