Fantastic Mustard Green…

Mar 12, 2009

I grew a wonderful Mustard Green in the garden this past fall through winter and it's still going strong. It's called 'Southern Giant Curled' and you can procure the seed from Botanical Interest. I'd direct seeded it out into the garden and it's been as happy as could be all winter long. But I sort of forgot about harvesting much of it. I mixed some of it into a fresh salad the other day and was reminded about how tasty it is! Sweet tasting leaves followed by just the right amount of spicy mustard flavor. This variety is very slow to bolt and the plants in my garden haven't even thought about blooming yet. It's a pretty plant to boot...

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmustard! I admit I grow something similar (maybe an asian variety?) and I just mostly look at it, instead of actually eating it. Raw it’s a little too spicy for me. Maybe braised with another, milder green? I keep meaning to find a recipe. Yours looks gorgeous!

I agree, very pretty.  Wish I could taste!
