Walking through a bed a Red Giant Mustard is like being transported into a Jurassic ecosystem. Its massive, deep burgundy leaves with green midribs seem like they were born in another time and place, when everything was bigger and bolder. Mildly flavored in the baby leaf stage and gaining some spice at maturity, this mustard is great both raw in salads and cooked into stir-fry or soups.
