Giant Red mustards make bold, versatile ornamental edibles. Upright, large rosettes up to 18" tall, are very colorful, with deep red purplish savoy leaves edged and veined pale green. Easy to grow in spring, fall and winter gardens, these grow well mixed with flowers, herbs and other vegetables. The unique spicy flavor adds zest to a variety of dishes. Picked young, it makes delightful garnishes and spices up mesclun mixes. Excellent braised or steamed, in salads or stir-fries. Use like spinach or chard. Harvest whole heads or pick individual leaves. In addition to the edible uses, Giant Red Mustard makes an amazing ornamental plant.
Since mustard greens thrive in cool weather, they taste best when grown as early in the spring as possible or as a fall crop. For a spring crop, direct sow the seed in full sun and rich soil about four weeks before the last expected spring frost and lightly rake them into the soil. Keep the rows 10-12" apart. When seedlings emerge, thin them to 5-6" apart. For a continual harvest, plant more Red Giant Mustard every 10-14 days. For fall planting, plant the seeds in late summer or early fall about 10 weeks before the first hard frost. Warmer climates can grow them from fall through spring. Keep the plants moist and free of weeds. A thick layer of mulch will help conserve moisture.
