Field oka-Wasabi and
Wasabi is cultivated in two different ways. The higher quality Wasabi traditionally grows in Japan’s cool mountain streams and is known as semi-aquatic or “sawa”. Field Wasabi or “oka” is grown in fields and generally results in a lower quality product. Pacific Coast Wasabi grows Wasabi in greenhouses using a system that produces “sawa” quality Wasabi. We do not grow any Wasabi in fields. Pacific Coast Wasabi grows two main varieties of Wasabi: Daruma and Mazuma.
