Recently rechristened by our friend Elanor at Persephone Farm, ‘Dragon Tongue’ is our newest mustard recombination, melding the mellow Horned with the sweet and colorful Miike. Slow bolting with high contrast leaves of purple veining on a bright green background, and wide midribs that grow and thicken at maturity, “horning up” into a great stir-fry vegetable. Salad size leaves are textured and colorful, with full sweet mustard flavor, but not too hot. My fall favorite. Farm Original Variety!
