Botanical Interest - Red Giant Mustard Heirloom Seeds

SKU: 0131



Big, bold, maroon leaves with lime veins are as delicious as they are ornamental in the garden or a container. Excellent pickled, wilted, or raw in salads, 'Red Giant's' mustard flavor intensifies in older leaves and hot weather, providing hints of horseradish. This traditional Asian green is faster growing and spicier than traditional southern mustards. Cold tolerant and bolt resistant.


Days to Emerge: 5–10 days

Days to Maturity: 40 days

Plant Dimensions: 12"–24" tall

Variety Information: Slightly savoyed, purplish-red, thick and tender leaves, in a loose head. Spicy, rich horseradish flavor intensifies with heat and as leaves get larger. 'Red Giant' can be used when very young and small, or more matured. If left to reseed, the volunteers revert to its strong-tasting, wild predecessor. It is particularly tolerant to cold and bolting, and has wide soil adaptability.

Attributes: Good for Containers, Heat Tolerant
