Mustard - Red Giant (100 seeds) - Brassica juncea

 

  • Grown for its large red, slightly savoyed leaves
  • Vigorous, hardy and quick to grow
  • Mild mustard flavour
  • Bee attracting

 

 

 

Red mustard greens are rich in vitamins A, C and K. They contain compounds which have cancer preventing benefits, including antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and natural detoxifying properties.

 

Red mustard greens pair well with rich meats such as pork, lamb and sausages, creamy sauces, aged and melting cheeses, apples, peaches, cucumbers, citrus, vinegars, especially apple cider and rice, nuts like pistachios and hazelnuts, herbs and spices including cumin, cilantro, dill, garlic, fennel and coriander. The seeds of the mustard plant can be sprouted and eaten raw or dried and used as a spice or in pickling brine, and of course, to make the eponymous condiment.
