Mustard greens have broad, wavy frilled leaves with longitudinal veins and a deep green color. The upright leaves are supported by coarse stems that can be quite fibrous when fully mature. Smaller leaves are considerably tenderer, while larger Mustard greens require cooking. They have a succulent yet crunchy texture and a robust flavor reminiscent of pepper and horseradish.
Mustard greens may be found year-round with peak season fall through spring.
