Red Frills


Category: Tag:

A distinctive red mustard whose frilly leaves are standout additions to mixed salads.


Brassica juncea

A distinctive red mustard that has frilly leaves growing upright from a rosetted base. The frilly leaves give them a very attractive appearance, both in the garden – they wouldn’t be out of place used in a purely ornamental role – and in the kitchen.

The plants are a taller and slightly bigger-leafed than their sister variety to Golden Streaks (which we also sell).

Leaves can be harvested at any age, from baby leaf stage right through to fully mature. Their stand-out-and-notice-me colour, along with a rich, hot mustard flavour make the leaves a very interesting addition to any salad. They are also good in stir-fries, stews and curries.

Sow mid to late spring for outdoor crops and early autumn for overwintering in a tunnel or greenhouse.

Note: Mustards can be quite pungent, especially when eaten raw. Their pungency, however, differs considerably depending on growing conditions, plant part and age of the plant.
