Red Giant Mustard has been popular in Japanese cuisine for centuries. Its vibrant, deeply lobed leaves are often used to add both color and a peppery kick to a variety of dishes.  The unique flavor profile of the mustard adds depth and complexity to a range of dishes. In traditional Japanese cooking, it is commonly used in salads, stir-fries, and as a garnish. Enjoy pickled as well! 

With an ornamental and  culinary appeal, gardeners have been drawn to its striking   dark purple-red leaves offering an attractive addition to their garden and a flavorful, nutritious leafy green.  The leaves are deeply lobed, creating an attractive and visually appealing plant. The deep red or purple color intensifies as the plant matures, making it a standout in garden beds and containers.
