(B. juncea) Beautiful large Japanese type. Purple-red leaves with a delicious strong, sharp, almost garlic-like, mustard flavor. Tasty stir-fried or boiled and makes a great pickling variety.

What are the pros? Beautiful colors

What are the cons? Doesn't grow all year long.

Review:

Stunning in a vegi garden or flower bed. The leaves look like peacock feathers in purple backed with green. The leaves and stems are much thicker than regular mustard. The spicy mustard taste is great on a sandwich raw. Cooked it mellows out and is one of the best cooked greens we grow. Even the kids like it. It retains some of the purple tones when cooked. The stems are thick and edible like a tender chard. Very easy to grow. We plant it in the fall and enjoy it until late spring. It grows well even in part shade. Rich soil and regular water best. Takes frost. No pests seem to bother it. Bolts several weeks later than Southern Giant green mustard and tastes way better.

Review:

Grateful Garden is located in Zone 5b-6. This is a wonderful crimson mustard. It germinates well and grows rapidly. I was surprised that under the tough conditions of a record breaking spring drought and heat wave, it held up longer then I expected before bolting. Like all leaf Brassica it is best suited for very early spring and late Autumn to early winter cool wet conditions. I believe this mustard is one of the most beautiful crimson purple leaf plants I have seen, it certainly gets peoples attention. Also the flavor is Full Rich and VERY well balanced. Japanese Giant Red has earned a permanent place in the 'Grateful Garden'.
