Mizuna is a leafy green vegetable that’s native to East Asia. It’s also referred to as Japanese mustard greens, spider mustard, or konya. Part of the Brassica genus, mizuna is related to other cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and Brussels sprouts. It has dark green, serrated leaves with thin stems and a peppery, slightly bitter flavor. While commonly grown for commercial salad mixes, it can also be enjoyed cooked or pickled. Interestingly, mizuna is one of just a few vegetables grown in space as part of an experiment on the International Space Station. It’s generally easy to cultivate because it has a long growing season and does well in colder temperatures. You’ll usually find mizuna greens growing as an annual, though it’s possible to overwinter mizuna, which is technically a biennial. Mizuna won’t bolt as readily as other heat-sensitive greens, but it’s still prone to bolting, nonetheless. Extreme heat speeds up the process, so plan your planting accordingly.
