Mustard Red Giant

6.90 

Brassica juncea ‘Red Giant’ 

Spicy and peppery mustard, full of vitamins A, B and C. 

Mustard is one of the oldest spices in the world. The term ‘mustard’ often refers to the seeds, and it may come as a nice surprise that even the green parts of the mustard plant are edible. They are nutritious and contain vitamins A, B and C. 

The large, lovely red leaves have a green leaf stalk that brings great contrast, and the leaves are reallyspectacular. The leaves can be eaten as such when young, and they add a slight kick to, for example, a mild salad. The peppery and spicy leaves that taste a little like horseradish are ideal, when larger, in soups and for frying in a pan.
