'Golden Frill'  

We are so happy to finally offer this unique spicy mustard in our catalog. I recognized this variety the first time I laid eyes on it, and remembered our minor role in its creative breeding. Circa 1997, a Japanese Brassica breeding company purchased an ounce of our ‘Violet Moss Curled’ kale, a B. napus relative of rutabaga.‘Golden Frill’ appears to come from a cross of this moss curled kale and ‘Green Wave’ mustard, as its leaf shape is a perfect replication of the kale, its taste and texture are perfectly sweet spicy mustard, and the root actually swells to make a very crisp, juicy, radishy, turnip-like vegetable. I love it for its delicate salad-lofting leaflets of sweet pungency, I like the way it holds onto vinaigrette, I like how its firm lacy leaf-form hides flea beetle holes in summer, and slug nibbles the rest of the year. I think of this variety as a new backbone ingredient for salad mix, and an elegant example of classical plant breeding. Hats off.
