Taste and Usage: Shiso Purple® is the most popular product in the Koppert
Cress assortment. The unique taste is slightly reminiscent of
cumin. 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 and Storage: 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.
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.
