Taste

Shiso Purple is the most popular product in the Koppert Cress assortment. The unique taste is slightly reminiscent of cumin.

Taste Friends

Shiso Purple can be used in a variety of dishes and is also extremely decorative. It tastes best when combined with wild mushrooms, cheese, or bouillon. We also recommend combining Shiso Purple with raw fish.

Origin

The red colour in combination with good taste is difficult to find. Red beet is too well known, beet-shoots are not really a taste but more a charmer. Radichio is hardly ever eaten, but merely shoved to the side of the plate. And Lollo Rosso is available in every supermarket. We believe that if one needs colour on a plate, Shiso Purple is an excellent choice.

Availability

Shiso Purple is available year round and can easily be stored for up to seven days at a temperature of 12-16°C. Produced in a socially responsible culture, Shiso Purple meets the hygienic kitchen standards. The product is ready to use, since it is grown clean and hygienically. Shiso Purple is, as all the Koppert Cress cresses and specialties, produced according to the SQF 2000 guidelines. If Shiso Purple is kept at a temperature below 5°C, it tends to wither. However, if kept at 15°C for a couple of hours, it returns to its normal shape
