Red mizuna greens have fragile, thin rhubarb colored stems that produce crimson-tinged elongated leaves. Each leaf has a saw-tooth shape and a feather-thin texture. The leaves are preferred for their flavor forward notes of mustard and tanginess of sorrel.
Red Mizuna is available in the winter and spring months.
Red mizuna, scientific name, Brassica rapa nipponosica, is a cool season Japanese leafy type mustard green. It is often sold in seed catalogs under the name "mesclun mix", a spicy blend including European greens such as arugula, orach and radicchio. Red mizuna can also be found in Western supermarkets within pre-packaged and cut lettuce mixes, its uniquely textured and bright flavored leaves mingling with lesser flavored greens such as iceberg, romaine, spinach and mache. In farmers markets throughout the world it is sold in bunches, stems attached.
