Land Seaweed Okahijiki are a unique and versatile addition to any home or market garden. This fast-growing, coastal vegetable is a staple in Japanese cuisine, prized for its crunchy texture and slightly bitter, salty flavor. It is often used as a side dish, a topping for rice bowls, or as a main ingredient in salads and stir-fries.

Land Seaweed Okahijiki is easy to grow from seed and requires only minimal care. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, and is resistant to both pests and diseases. In just a few weeks, you can have a bounty of fresh, nutritious greens ready for harvesting.

Sow the seeds directly in the garden in the spring or summer, spacing them approximately 12 inches apart. Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged, until the plants are established. Then, reduce watering to once a week or as needed.
