Red Giant Mustard
Certified Organic Seed
Sharp & sweet flavor deepens in the cold, as does the color.
Mustards are underappreciated in the garden. This Asian variety is robust and beautiful. Its leaves are green with a deep purple hue, thin and very soft when steamed or sautéed. Its slight bite adds a pleasant tangy ring to any meal, complementing grains beautifully. Extremely easy to grow--and fast! Stays more mild flavored in cool weather; does quite well into late fall.

Sow under protection 4-6 weeks before last frost, thin to 1" for baby or 12-18" for mature leaves; or, transplant 12" apart 3 weeks before last frost. Fall crops are most successful: sow July-August. Spring-sown crops must be harvested young to beat bolting; they also may need row cover to protect against flea beetle damage. All Asian mustards will overwinter with protection and give delicious greens through January, at least.
