Mustard, Dragon Tongue / Ho Mi Z
Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.
Hands down the most beautiful broad-leaf red mustard for salad mix. The leaf color is a pattern of green & purple, making it hard to describe. The vivid greens, purples, & reds of the leaves remind Sarah of one of those 3D hidden picture images from the 90s, but you have to cross your eyes to see the pirate ship. Very slow to bolt in spring, it has the perfect balance of sweet & spicy flavors. Sizes up enough to be used in stir-fry. Bred by Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seeds in Philomath, Oregon, & renamed Dragon Tongue by Eleanor O'Brien of Persephone Farm in Lebanon, Oregon. It is Frank's favorite fall mustard & Andrew's favorite spring mustard. Selected from a cross between Horned & Miike mustards.
