Brassica rapa var.japonica
Mizuna is a leafy green mustard like vegetable that is native to Japan but is also commonly grown and consumed in other parts of the world.
Mizuna has feathery leaves that are green and slightly serrated. It has a slightly peppery taste that is similar to arugula, but with a slightly more mild flavour. Mizuna is typically eaten raw in salads, but it can also be cooked and used in stir-fries, soups, and other dishes.
Mizuna is a nutrient-dense vegetable that is high in vitamins A and C, as well as several important minerals such as calcium and potassium. It is also a good source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, making it a healthy addition to any diet.
