Mizuna Red Streaked Mustard (20-45 Days)

One of our favorites! Deeply serrated fringy baby leaves are purple-red and pack a zingy peppery flavor that gets bolder with age. The Mizuna Red Streaked Mustard greens are great to plant along with other baby greens to add some flare to a salad. Slow to bolt but best planted in spring or fall.
