The leaves can be harvested on the rod cut in summer, then on the new rod and its branches, throughout the summer and fall. The seeds are harvested in autumn when when they arrive at maturity. To collect Perilla seeds, the whole plant is harvested and beaten, to be able to spread the seeds for drying in the sun.
