What are Mustard Greens?
Mustard greens are a leafy vegetable. They can be grown as baby size making them good to add to salads or they can be grown to a large size to be bunched similar to how you see kale.
They are in the brassica family which is the same family as broccoli. Brassicas love the cool weather so you will often see these greens in fall, winter, and spring here in Central Texas.
What do Mustard Greens taste like?
There are tons of different varieties of these greens but they all have the same undertone flavor…
Can you guess what that is??
The variety we grow is a sweet variety. It is actually amazingly sweet on the forefront but then has a Dijon mustard flavor towards the back.
If you like arugula, you’ll love these greens!

It is amazing as a dip or drizzled over veggies.
