Delicious mild flavor when lightly sauteed. The stems will get tough if allowed to set seeds.

Neutral Farmerdill On Feb 5, 2008, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

A cultivated relative of field mustard. Purple flower stems and buds. A Chinese specialty. The young plants soon branch and produce quantities of long, pencil-thin, red-purple, budded flower stems. Pleasing, mild mustard taste for use raw in salads or lightly cooked in stir-fries or soups. For multiple harvesting of tender stems and leaves. Can be spring sown, but yields best when sown June through October for harvest from midsummer through winter (in mild areas).
