The supply is limited due to a severe late frost.  The price is $10 for a packet of fifty seeds, ppd. in USA.  International shipments are US$16/pkt.  At present, there is a limit of one packet per person; if you'd like more, let us know and after all orders are filled we will contact you if there is any seed remaining.

You can send payment to my email address: joehollisherbs@gmail.com using Paypal; be sure to include "wasabi seeds" and your shipping address.  Alternatively, you can mail a check made out to "Joe Hollis" to 546 Shuford Cr. Rd., Burnsville, NC 28714.  Please no international checks.

The seed is best planted immediately, but in any case must not dry out. It needs a period of cool / cold weather to germinate, so expect germination next March/April. 

This is seed grown wasabi and is not any particular variety; the varieties are selections which are cloned by tissue culture. 

For more information on growing wasabi, check out our upcoming workshop, Grow Wasabi. More information on wasabi cultivation on our Specialties page. See also Joe's Youtube video on wasabi.
