Frizzy Joe Mustard

Frizzy Joe Mustard

MU533

NEW! B. juncea 27 days (baby leaf). A very attractive, deeply toothed and super wavy green with a pleasant, mild mustard flavor. Plant both (Frizzy Joe and Frizzy Lizzy) 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.
