Plant: Early Spring or Fall

Brassica juncea

200 seeds/pack    |   45 days

These huge leaves with red and green coloring pack a spicy punch. The flavor is wasabi-like when eaten raw. The spice, however, diminishes when cooked and is great for stir-fry or soups. It will overwinter well in many climate zones not covered in snow. One thing I really appreciate about this green is that it is slow to bolt in the spring. When many of our other overwintered greens are going to seed we are still eating from this mustard. It is also the last to get aphids or harlequin beetle damage in the spring.
