Red Giant Mustard Greens
Brassica juncea Approximately 100 seeds per pack. Germination ~ 98% November 2021
This mustard is almost as ornamental as it is delicious! Originating in East Asia, 'Red Giant' is robust and beautiful. The base-color of its leaves is green, but they are shaded with a deep purple hue that no doubt adds to the healthy antioxidant levels of this variety.
Leaves are relatively thin and very tender when steamed or sautéed. Its mildly spicy flavor, reminiscent of horseradish, adds a pleasant zing to any meal. It's extremely easy to grow, and matures fast compared to other mustards. Cooler temperatures mellow-out its flavor, while sun and heat intensify it. Can last well into late fall or winter in warmer areas.
