Dark Purple Mizuna, With more deeply cut leaves than regular Mizuna, this attractive purple variety adds color and texture to baby leaf mixes. One in four plants has deep purple leaves and stems, while the remaining 75% are green with purple veining. Color deepens with age. Mild flavor.
Baby leaf mustards are making quite an inroad into Western cuisine, particularly in salads, where they add an appetizing flavor and texture. The delicately spiced greens are striking in appearance, particularly the varieties with lacey or frilly leaves. Their colors, which range from bright light green to garnet red, also add appeal to salads or alongside a gourmet dish. These baby greens grow quickly, and young leaves can be harvested on the lower part of even a mature plant.
