Petite® Green Frill Mustard is small in size, averaging 10-12 centimeters in length, and has long, slender, and deeply lobed leaves with ornately serrated edges. The bright green leaves are smooth, flexible, flat, and thin and are connected to tender, wispy green stems that are less fibrous than those of mature frill mustard. Petite® Green Frill Mustard is crisp and delicate with a robust mustard flavor and a mildly sweet and spicy pepper-like finish.
Petite® Green Frill Mustard is available year-round.
Petite® Green Frill Mustard is the young, edible version of the mature spicy green and is a part of a trademarked line of specialty greens grown by Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California. Designed to be slightly larger than microgreens, it is harvested approximately 4-6 weeks after sowing and is tender and flavorful. Petite® Green Frill Mustard is most commonly used by chefs as a garnish for main dishes or in salads as added flavor, texture, and color.
Petite® Green Frill Mustard contains vitamin A, C, E, and K, copper, manganese, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and antioxidants.
Petite® Green Frill Mustard is best suited for raw applications and is most commonly used as a garnish on appetizers and main dishes. It is also used as an edible bed for grilled meats and vegetables, placed on pasta, soups, in sandwiches, and its perforated leaves can hold up to vinaigrettes and oils allowing it to be mixed in with other salad greens. Petite® Green Frill Mustard pairs well with meats such as beef, pork, poultry, and grilled fish, cilantro, basil, cumin, garlic, sweet onions, red onion, mushrooms, fennel, black-eyed peas, creamy soft and fresh cheeses, nutty oils, light vinegars, citruses such as grapefruit and lemon, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, persimmons, pomegranates, and stone fruits such as peaches and cherries. The greens will keep 7-10 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator.
Petite® Green Frill Mustard is increasing in popularity for its pungent bite, unusual texture, and vibrant green hue. Mustard greens are commonly used in Indian, African, Chinese, and Japanese cuisine, and the petite version provides a milder and less spicy bite to complement dishes without overpowering it. Chefs use Petite® Green Frill Mustard as an accent to add visual appeal and flavor to appetizers, side dishes, and main dishes. They also use the deeply lobed leaves to add height and dimension, and these greens are extremely easy to incorporate as they are most commonly used fresh with little preparation.
Mustard greens are native to the Himalayan region of India and have grown in the wild as well as in cultivated gardens for over 5,000 years. The green frill variety is a relatively new hybrid that was created in Japan, and Petite® Green Frill Mustard was created by Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California in the 1990s-2000s. Today Petite® Green Frill Mustard can be found through select partners of Fresh Origins, such as Specialty Produce, and are available across the United States.
