Easy to grow in spring, fall and winter gardens, these grow well mixed with flowers, herbs and other vegetables.Excellent braised or steamed, in salads or stir-fries. Use like spinach or chard. Harvest whole heads or pick individual leaves. Giant Red Japanese mustards make bold, versatile ornamental edibles. Upright, large rosettes up to 18" tall, are very colorful, with deep red purplish savoy leaves edged and veined pale green. A Mustard Green so showy it just may do for this nutritious family what Bright Lights did for Swiss Chard. These leaves are slightly textured for a better bite and good holding power. The flavor is zesty and full, with a good bite that you just can't find in store-bought mustard greens. Imagine Red Giant flanking your Pansies and cheery Mums in the fall garden, or nestling beside bold Ornamental Cabbage and Kale. 250 seeds per package.
