This richly pigmented leafy wonder is called Shiso

Shiso is Japanese

In Korea they call it Ghatnip

it is a cross between mint and basil

it smells absolutely heavenly

I have been adding it to my salad-centric evening meals

I am very drawn to it’s color and rugged texture

Nanam at Epiphany Farms introduced me
