A family business happily growing watercress they took the decision to diversify in a radical way when they discovered wasabi had never before been grown in Europe. Specially adapted Victorian watercress beds run with mineral rich spring water where the wasabi thrives, until hand harvested and finely grated to deliver the rich, floral and pungent flavour of real wasabi.
Wasabia japonica is a perennial brassica native to Japan. Its natural habitat is the banks of mountain streams with abundant spring water loaded with nutrients and minerals. They re-create these wild wasabi conditions in watercress beds using ancient Japanese techniques. All parts of the wasabi plants are edible. Fresh rhizomes are harvested all year round; leaves & stems and flowers are seasonal.
Fresh wasabi rhizomes
The prized rhizomes take at least 18 months to reach harvest. Fine grating breaks down the wasabi at a cellular level instigating an enzyme reaction that delivers an aromatic, fresh flavoured pungency with a natural sweetness. Versatile in the extreme fresh wasabi can flavour dressings, butters, sauces, ceviches, gradvalax, sorbets, foams and freshly grated will accompany meat or fish.
The latest launch in their own label range is WASABI VODKA!
Distilled with the power and flavour of our fresh English wasabi, this vodka captures the true flavour and fire of wasabi. Made with real wasabi and nothing else, the flavour is bold and fresh, the pungent heat sweet and powerful.
