Mustard Greens - Florida Broadleaf

Brassica juncea

HEIRLOOM -A traditional Southern favorite with rich flavor, good yields, and vigorous growth. Large plants grow 16-22" with round leaves. Try the succulent white ribs for a crunchy spicy snack. There is nothing that wakes up a person faster, not even coffee, than a bite of raw mustard greens early in the morning! It goes straight to the sinus with a powerful wasabi punch, and for many people that makes it a great raw addition to salads and slaws. Mustard greens loose the sharp pungent edge when cooked by themselves or with other brassicas like kale or collards, either in a quick sauté or slow braise with some ham hock for a traditional mess of greens. Nutrients: vitamins A, K, and C, folate, calcium, and manganese
