Wasabi is very small in size, averaging 4 to 7 centimeters in height, and has thin, pale, light green stems that bear 2-4 bright green, tender, heart-shaped leaves. The leaves are smooth, pliable, and slightly rounded with even edges. Wasabi Microgreens are crisp, succulent, and semi-chewy, and boast an up-front mild, sweet green flavor that quickly bursts into distinct spicy notes with a sharp peppery flavor. This heat does not linger on the palate and mellows quickly, similar to the flavor of the popular horseradish.

Wasabi Microgreens is available year-round.
