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