Mustard - Red (100 seeds) - Brassica Rapa Var.Japonica

 

  • Gorgeous frilly leaves to eat raw or lightly sauteed
  • Vigorous, hardy and quick to grow
  • Suitable for microgreen and baby-leaf
  • Bee attracting

 

Red Mizuna contains vitamins A, C, and K, folate, iron, B-complex vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, and thiamine, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and manganese. Red Mizuna also has several compounds like glucosinolates, kaempferol, and anthocyanin, which is the red pigment in the leaves, that offer antioxidant benefits.
Red Mizuna is best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as sautéing, stir-frying, and boiling. The young leaves can be used as a highlight in salades.

In Japan, Red Mizuna, like green varieties, is pickled with salt and served as an appetizer or with beer.
