Product Overview

Brassica juncea

Not only is 'Red Giant' one of the most delicious greens, but it's beautiful in the garden, too! Enjoy seedlings, baby greens, or full-sized leaves.

Big, bold, maroon leaves with lime veins are as delicious as they are ornamental in the garden or a container. Excellent pickled, wilted, or raw in salads, 'Red Giant's' mustard flavor intensifies in older leaves and hot weather, providing hints of horseradish. This traditional Asian green is faster growing and spicier than traditional southern mustards. Cold tolerant and bolt resistant.

Variety Info

Slightly savoyed, purplish-red, thick and tender leaves, in a loose head. Spicy, rich horseradish flavor intensifies with heat and as leaves get larger. 'Red Giant' can be used when very young and small, or more matured. If left to seed, it reverts to its strong-tasting, wild predecessor. It is particularly tolerant to cold and bolting, and has wide soil adaptability.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended; transplant stress can cause plants to bolt (prematurely flower).

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, when soil temperature is at least 40°F, ideally 60°–75°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost date for continuous harvest. Mild Climates: Sow in late fall through winter for cool–season harvest.
