This green is ideal for harvest at a baby leaf stage when it has its best dark red color. It can be sold as a specialty Asian green or blended into a salad mix to add a mustardy flavor, texture and red color. The leaves are deeply serrated and produce their best color during periods of cool growing temperatures.
