Organic Red-Giant-Mustard Greens Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Red-Giant-Mustard Greens seeds take 21 days for baby greens and 45 days for full size maturity. The baby leaves are bright green with dark purple veins and have a mild mustard flavour that is perfect in salads. The mature leaves are large and a deep reddish purple colour. They are spicier at this stage and are delicious braised or in stir fries.

Begin to harvest when plants are 3-5 weeks old. For full size greens, sow in 5 cm. bands at a rate of 15 seeds per 30 cm. Protect plants from flea beetles by covering with floating row cover. For cut and come again cut plant .25 cm above soil level or harvest individual leaves.
