Korean Vegetable Seeds
The Korean Cuisine Garden features traditional Korean red peppers for making red chili paste (gochujang) and a
Korean cabbage used for making kimchi. Korean perilla and sesame are commonly used in Korean cooking. Jeok Gat
is a spicy mustard and Alpine Gold is a crisp Korean radish for pickling.
Korean Perilla, also known as shiso or deulkkae, is a perennial member of the mint family
Lamiaceae similar in size, flavor, and tolerance to peppermint.
However, unlike culinary mint, Korean perilla leaves grow much larger and are traditionally used
for wraps as well as pickling. While many shiso varieties have adapted to cooler
climates, Korean perilla still prefers warm, humid gardens similar to those of the Korean peninsula.
Korean Put Gochu, also known as Vita Green Hybrid, is a mild hot pepper traditionally used
in the dried Korean chili powder Gochugaru. Don't let the name "hot pepper" fool you, because the

oblong look similar to two other mild peppers, the Anaheim and the Jalapeno. Ideal for container gardening and patios.

grown nearly exclusively for gochugaru chili powder; used to create Gochujang sauce. Also known
as Korean long pepper, the Gochujang King hybrid has a rating of 1,500 SHU and is
far milder than jalapeno (2,500-8000 SHU). Commonly sown with other gochugaru pepper seeds for well-rounded gochugaru chili powder.

spicy, and purple ruffled leaves. Altough native to the warm Asian tropics, Brassica juncea is one of the most
