Although not a fruit, will you grow any shiso on the side ? Or maybe fresh shiso is commonly available in Japanese markets. I wil be (trying) growing some red shiso this year. Last time I tasted shiso was years ago and it was pickled, so I'm looking forward to (hopefully) taste some homegrown fresh this year.Xell wrote:I'm getting really interested in fruit trees.
For those who are wondering, shiso is a plant whose leaves are used in many Japanese dishes. It is called the Japanese basil. Or 'perilla' for its latin name. There is both green and red shiso. Often you can see it with umeboshi pickled plums. Shiso seeds are available in North America.
