Red Garnet mustard is an attractive variant with red leaves and green stems. They are also among the easiest microgreens to grow.
They have an interesting blend of color - medium green splotched and dotted with violet. Tasting pungent like how mustard should be, a little goes a long way. Try using this zesty microgreen as a replacement for wasabi!
Can be grown to baby leaves if harvested in around 21 days, where the pungent taste will lower in intensity.
For a deeper Red coloring, grow indoors under grow light and prevent excessive heat.
