Southern Giant Curled Mustard seed is super easy to grow.
The microgreens have a red tinge along the edges of the cotyledons and true leaves. However, the red color doesn’t appear until the plants are larger.
These microgreens pack some spiciness but aren’t super hot like the Wasabi Mustard microgreens.
Harvest these microgreens between days 7 and 18 for a zing on sandwiches or in salads.
Control the spicy flavor by adjusting how many microgreens you add to your dish.
We use Southern Giant Curled Mustard seed in our Intensely Flavorful mix.
