(Brassica juncea) This spicy little number found its way into our salad mix several years back. Delicate deeply lobed leaves and rich purple color (a la “Osaka Purple” but more uniformly colored) add a unique color/texture combo for baby greens. The flavor is fairly fiery in the mustard sense and would be perfect in a spicy mesclun, but we even added it judiciously to our regular mix with nary a complaint. Mature leaves are beautiful bunched.
21 days baby, 35 days bunching/braising. UO
