Mustard
Mustard greens are very popular in China for stir-fry, and mostly used cooked. The oriental mustards are a very large group of rather coarse-leaved brassicas, usually having a spicy flavour. The main advantage for the gardener is that they are very robust, tolerating a wide range of soil types, and most are exceptionally hardy, ideal for winter.
Oriental Mustards add tastes and textures to your mixed salads, sandwiches and garnishes and also stir fries. Pick the nutritious leaves of Oriental Mustards as you need them. It is also ideal to grow in containers on the patio. Fresh greens are a good source of provitamin A, vitamins C and K, and folate.
