Brassica juncea ‘Fringed Red’
Mustards are one of the oldest spices in history. In the old Mediterranean cultures a legend told that mustard was introduced to us mortals by Asclepius and Ceres. When talking about mustard, we usually mean the seeds. But the greens of the mustard plant are also edible and enjoyed in many cuisines. They are nutritious, too, containing vitamins A, B and C. Our prettily blushing, frilly salad green has a peppery, spicy, subtly horseradish-like flavor. The young leaves can be enjoyed raw and give a nice, spicy flavor to milder salad leaves. The more mature greens taste best when boiled or in stir-fries.
