– Sold Out

Shungiku is an easy-to-grow type of edible chrysanthemum that brings a distinctly aromatic signature to a wide variety of dishes. The young tender leaves can be eaten fresh, blanched, or in stir-fries, and since this is a chrysanthemum, it will produce adorable yellow flowers that attract your favorite pollinators (the petals are also edible and make a great garnish!). This ingenious cultivation kit includes seeds, peat mix, and growing instructions, all packaged up and tied in the style of a traditional Japanese rice bag.
