Product Description:

Brassica juncea 21 days (baby leaf). These sibling mustards are a very attractive pair of deeply toothed and super wavy greens with a pleasant, mild mustard flavor. Plant them both for the striking contrast of Joe’s bright green to Lizzy’s purple and the added loft and spice to salad mixes. Terrific for baby leaf mixes, but the mature plants have great field-holding and bolt resistance for a long harvest window of full-sized leaves.

Pretty and delicious

I grew a bunch of these in small pots on my front porch this spring, which gets dappled sunlight for most of the day. They did fantastic! No pests, no early bolting. I was able to harvest these right through until we hit our 100 degree week in late June. I allowed them to bolt then, to attract pollinators for the summer crops. I think the plants are so pretty, too!
Not too spicy, a great addition to any salad or sandwich. I will absolutely be growing these again next spring.
