Organic Southern Giant Curled Mustard
Organic Southern Giant Curled Mustard (56 days)
What a an excellent mustard this is! Leafy large green leaves are frilled and prolific. Southern Giant has an excellent flavor packed full of vitamins A, B, and C! Slow to bolt. Typically used later in the season for its superior cold tolerance.
Don't be fooled that this is just a Southern dish. Mustard greens grow well just about anywhere. We treat them here as an early spring or late fall planting because the cool weather produces a tastier leaf. Ya don't have to throw hog jowls in them to make them taste good, either! We use the young leaves fresh in salads and later in the winter, we use them in soups.
A favorite for canning and freezing.
Mustards are a lot like kale in their use. Yes, they are a bit better suited to warm weather, but here on the Pacific Coast we can get away with growing them almost all year long. What does that mean? A VERY important vitamin packed food source for not only us, but the animals as well. Remember to never give rabbits too much of any of the brassica (kale, mustard, broccoli, etc..) family. Makes them....well...a bit gaseous. We never give any one rabbit more than a leaf a day, but it is still excellent for them.
