Garnet Giant Mustard - Organic

Brassica juncea
(20 days baby; 45 days mature) Open-pollinated. Despite its name, this mustard is a favorite for cutting at its dark purple baby stage. At its giant 3' form, plants rival the best of fall color with sun shining off vibrant maroon slightly toothed leaves on gangly lime green stems with yellow bolting flowers—the effect was glorious in our trial garden. The sweet spicy leaves, stems and flowers were all equally tender and delicious, whether grazed or braised.
