Perilla 'magilla'- edible?

I assume this perilla is related to the other shiso or beefsteak plants.

Has anyone eaten it? or have any info?

'Magilla' is only a variety name. These common name for Perilla is Shiso and what I've read it would be just as edible as the common variety. Kewl, another pretty that I can eat!

The perillas are used to flavoring and coloring various pickled vegetables and the red one goes with pickled plums.
I believe all the perillas are edible herbs.
