These mustard microgreens can be harvested at an early cotyledon stage or grown as long as possible in a microgreen tray.
The results will differ in shape and color but not spiciness! Scarlet Frills Mustard microgreens are very spicy with a bold mustard flavor even at an early stage.
This mustard is great to use fresh in spring rolls, sandwiches, stir fry, or dishes where you want some spice.
Harvest these microgreens between days 6 and 30 for a zing on sandwiches or in salads.
The flavor is about the same as the microgreens mature into baby leaf greens, but the texture will change. I prefer to eat them as the first true leaves form. They aren’t nearly up to full color yet, but they’re more tender.
Control the spicy flavor by adjusting how many microgreens you add to your dish.
