Mustard - Ruby Streaked

Mustard - Ruby Streaked

Brassica juncea

Visually stunning with bold purple coloring on deeply toothed leaves. Germinates quickly, grows rapidly, and is suitable for multiple cuttings. The flavor is sweet and spicy, though not excessively hot. Color deepens in autumn. 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 (1 Gram Packet)
