Dragon Tongue Mustard Organic

Dragon Tongue Mustard Organic

MU522

Brassica juncea 40 days. Probably the prettiest mustard green we've seen, Dragon Tongue is a sweet and jaw-dropping beauty. Frilly, crinkled leaves are vibrant green with purple veins and thick, brilliant white midribs. With a flavor to match its looks, it's full-flavored and succulent without being overly spicy. Superb in stir-fries or robust winter salads.

This grows fast and has a nice Chinese Mustard taste w/out the excessive heat. Let the leaves grow large for stronger flavor. Growing this in raised bed in green house with low heat circulation. Will handle temperature fluctuations.
