Wasabi Leaves - Currently unavailable due to winter weather

from 15.00

If stems only are desired, please send an email stating as such; leaves and stems are the same price.  Stem of approximately 3-4 inches are included as default.   Leaves and stems (petioles) are edible.  The heat is greater in the stem than the leaf.  But the heat is significantly milder in the leaves and stems than the rhizome. Both the leaf and stem contain the compounds claimed to have health benefits including (glucosinolates and isothiocyanates). The heat in the leaves and stems will diminish when cooked and taste similar to sautéed spinach and asparagus respectively. Stems and leaves can be pickled, fermented, sautéed or served raw.  Leaves can be shipped with or without stems (email to specify).  Depending on size, there are approximately 35 leaves with attached stems per pound or 80 leaves per pound.  Size varies, but typically leaves are 5-inches in diameter and petioles are 6 inches in length.

Note: Flowers available in late winter to early spring.  Flowers can be steeped as an herbal tea, added to soups or salads. Email info@thewasabistore.com for pricing.

**Maximum order quantity is 5lbs. Want more? Contact info@thewasabistore.com .
