Red Giant Mustard Seeds (Organic)

Red Giant Mustard Seeds (Organic)

Bold Reds, Tasty Greens

Red Giant Mustard, also known as 'Ruby Streaks,' is a vibrant and flavorful leafy green prized for its bold foliage and peppery taste. Originating from Japan, this mustard variety boasts stunning, deeply serrated maroon leaves with bright green veins, creating a visually striking addition to gardens.

In terms of taste, Red Giant Mustard offers a zesty, spicy flavor with hints of horseradish. Its peppery kick intensifies as the leaves mature. These flavorful greens are versatile in culinary use, adding depth to salads, sandwiches, stir-fries, and as a garnish for various dishes.

When planting from seed, Red Giant Mustard prefers well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Sow seeds directly in the garden in early spring or late summer, as they thrive in cooler temperatures. Plant the seeds about half an inch deep and one inch apart in rows, ensuring adequate spacing for mature growth.

The plant matures relatively quickly, typically reaching harvestable size within 40-50 days from sowing. Regular harvesting of outer leaves encourages continuous growth and ensures tender, flavorful leaves.

This cultivar belongs to the Brassica juncea family and is a favorite among gardeners due to its ornamental value and culinary versatility. With its attractive appearance and bold flavor profile, Red Giant Mustard remains a popular choice for both culinary and aesthetic purposes in home gardens and professional kitchens alike.

Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Mustard greens prefers rich, fertile soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5 and plenty of added organic matter. The plants need regular, even moisture to avoid bitterness.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors and transplant out after the last frost, or sow seeds directly a few weeks before the last frost. Use this as a cool-season, end-of-summer crop too, sowing seeds well before the first frost of the fall. Mustard is very cold tolerant.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting individual leaves after the center rosette has begun to develop. You can begin harvesting at 6" by picking outside leaves. Mustard greens are slow to bolt and are winter hardy.
