Description / Red Giant Mustard Seeds

Days to Maturity: 20 to 40

At last, a mustard green so showy it just may do for this nutritious family what Bright Lights did for Swiss chard—put it in every garden and on every table of gardeners who love bold colors and fresh flavor in their veggies. Red Giant is a brilliant maroon with deep green midribs, so showy you may just have to plant two crops—one in the veggie patch and one along the walkway or in your annual border.

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. Or put it in bright containers for an unforgettable patio or porch display.

Because you pick this mustard leaf by leaf for eating (instead of uprooting the entire plant, as you do for head lettuce), you can enjoy the fine display of color for many weeks. Frost just improves the flavor and color.

Sow seed outdoors in early spring or, for fall crops, 6 to 8 weeks before first fall frost. Space seedlings 1 to 2 inches apart in rows 15 inches apart.

Makes salad with a zing
Review by Crazy Colleen
It easily grows from seed and is ornamental enough to mix with pansies and violas in flower pots, making it practical to put in flower garden. It has a hot spicy flavor for those who like to give their salads a zing.

Review by Chris
Ornamental vigorous plant produces fresh greens for at least part of the winter. It is not as cold tolerant as kale or collards but here in West TN I have had greens up to January and the plants will come back as soon as the weather warms up, some time in March. The plant also has very pretty yellow flowers in spring that reach 4 feet tall and have a delicious scent. Cook the shredded leaves with olive oil to tone down the sharp flavor. Delicious!
