Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Mustard Ruby Streaks has vibrant dark purple feathery foliage so will pep up your homegrown salad with mild mustard flavour and add colour to your dinner plate.
Mustard Ruby Streaks seeds are easy and quick to germinate and leaves can be ready to eat in as little as 6 weeks. They can even be used at the seedling stage as they make excellent flavoursome microgreens.
They are a cut & come again variety so keep picking to ensure fresh new growth but as they are at their best when eaten young and tender sow seed little and often every 3-4 weeks to ensure a successional crop of fresh young leaves throughout the season. Use with Mustard Golden Streaks & mix with other salad leaves like Rocket, Mizuna, Mibuna or corn salad and create your own bistro salad to suit your tastes.
