Description from Sarah Raven
Mustard ‘Red Frills’ is a brand new red mustard variety which looks good with it’s serrated red leaves and tastes distinctly of freshly cooked new potatoes. Fantastic.
You can sow these oriental red mustards little and often and eat them as mini micro greens, or let them grow on a few centimetres in leaf size and use them in a baby leaf salad. Or use them full size in stir fries.
