Vegetable Mustard Red Giant

A beautiful brilliant reddish maroon mustard from Japan, ‘Red Giant’ has well-savoyed thick leaves and a strong mustard flavor.  The leaves are slightly textured for a better bite and good holding power. The flavor is zesty and full, with a good bite that you can’t find in store-bought greens. Has good cold tolerance and can be harvested well into winter.  Attractive enough for flower borders as well as the allotment.
