The last mustard standing after several hard frosts, even outlasting many of our kales. Long, bright green, serrated leaves pack some heat when raw but quickly mellow-out when cooked. Densely leaved, upright plants are ideal for cutting and bunching. This heirloom from Southern China provides added food security for those extra cold winters!
