Shepherd's Purse is in the mustard family so has notes of cabbage and mustard but the flavor is gentle and mild. Believed in Japan to soothe and calm the spirit.
This plant is a direct ancestor of the widely cultivated daikon radish, it is easy to recognize resemblance to daikon radish in the leaves. The flavor of the leaves is considerably more mild and pleasant than the leaves of a daikon.
