Vegetable: Mustard Greens
SYG Variety: Red Giant, Tendergreen
Mustard Greens is one of my favorites of the leafy green varieties we offer through SYG. It’s easy to grow from seed and the spicy flavor adds a nice kick to any recipe that calls for greens! I love to grow the Red Giant variety, because its beautiful purplish red hue adds such a wonderful pop of color in a sea of green garden colors.
