Product description

Red Shiso is usually used as a culinary herb. The distinctive cinnamon aroma is its signature. It truly adds flavor and color to any vegetable, meat or seafood dish. Its large raw leaves may be used as a wrap for grilled steak, fish or chicken. In the coastal region of China, red shiso is believed to be able to remove the stingy odor from seafood. It is also popular in Japan and Korea. Red shiso is a tender perennial that is grown in warm regions like southern California. However, it is often being cultivated as an annual.
