This mustard strongly resembles Ruby Streak. Its ornately fringed purple and green leaves deliver a peppery flavor that is milder than arugula and packed with nutrients. The thin green stalks are tasty as well, making this variety a perfect baby leaf salad green. Leaves become dark purple when growth temperatures are cool.
The seed lot we are offering has a small amount of mix Mustard Tendergreen with the Crimson Tide seed. Please email request photos if this is a concern.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after danger of all frost or late summer/early fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Plant every 2 weeks for continuous harvest. The flavor is best when grown briskly so plant in fertile soil and keep well watered. Start harvesting at 20 days for baby mustard greens.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Full grown leaves are still tender enough for salads and are great in stir-fry.
