Miz America Mustard

Miz America Mustard

MU529

B. juncea 30-40 days. This head-turning burgundy, mizuna-type mustard glows with its rich pigmentation at every stage of growth. Deeply lobed and serrated leaves are crunchy and mild flavored for enjoying as baby greens or fully developed leaves. We love the way Miz America emerges from the seed with its glowing, wine coloration saturating the cotyledons. The plants grow vigorously and uniformly, and the beautiful pigment never wavers.
