MU547A - Komatsuna Red
Komatsuna Red mustard seeds tolerate heat well and can be planted from spring to fall. The seeds do not need warm soil to germinate, so they can be planted in late winter for spring harvests as well. Try some in containers on the balcony. The leaves are round, flat and purple on top with green undersides and green stems. They are good in salads, sandwiches, and stir-fries. Use as a baby leaf in salad blends, or try them as microgreens. Komatsuna remains unfamiliar to many Western gardeners, but it is a West Coast Seeds staff favourite. Plants are fast-growing, productive, tasty, and very easy to grow.
