Growing Information


  • Soak the seeds in water overnight to encourage germination. Sow at 1/2" spacing and 1/4" deep and cover with a thin layer of soil.
  • Maintain moisture and warmth (~70˚F+) through germination.


  • Once established, thin to 1" spacing: remove any plants closer than 1" to allow remaining plants to grow.
  • Three weeks after sowing, thin again to 2-2.5" spacing.


  • Harvest at 6-8" height, leaving 2" from the roots. You can harvest again after cutting if you add fertilizer after harvest.

Cooking Information

Mitsuba can be used raw as a garnish or in salads. Try using in cooked dishes such as:

  • Ohitashi: add to boiled vegetables such as bean sprouts or spinach, eaten with soy sauce or ponzu and katsuobushi.
  • Osuimono: dashi-based clear soup.

Note: only add to cooked dishes when the heat is turned off, as overcooking will make it tough and less aromatic.
