Mustard - Southern Giant Curled (200 seeds) - Brassica juncea

 

  • Eat raw or lightly sauteed
  • Vigorous, hardy and quick to grow
  • Mild mustard flavour
  • Bee friendly

 

 

Frilly and curly enough to look like lettuce, Southern Giant Curled mustard is a flavoursome surprise in salads. The young leaves have a mildly spicy flavour, while the older ones are hotter. With cooking, the flavour becomes milder, so if you don’t like hot mustard flavours, don’t let your older leaves go to waste. You can save your mustard leaves by freezing. Try slow cooking the big leaves with bone broth soup. Yummy!
