Petite™ Red Frill Mustard resembles the fully grown version of the vegetable, only in a smaller format. The ornately toothed leaves are a shade of deep green with purple and maroon accents. They average 10 centimeters in length and have tender wispy stems that are less fibrous than those of mature frill mustard. Petite™ Red Frill Mustard is herbaceous and nutty with the classic peppery bite of mustard greens. Though delicate in comparison to the fully grown plants, the petite version is considerably more hearty and versatile than when harvested as a microgreen.
Petite™ Red Frill Mustard is available year-round.
