The Asia Ip and Britton varieties come from Johnny’s Seeds. The green shiso is grown from the seed stock of shiso originally purchased locally at Leilani’s Nursery in Waimanalo.
Green is a staple, the type you get in sushi. Britton is pretty, but a little less tender. Asia Ip is supposedly more flavorful, a Korean variety with a slight tinge of purple on the underside. This is the first time we’re growing Asia Ip, so the stronger flavor is as described from the website.
