    I already was a lover of red mustards for the excitement they add to salads and dishes alike and Ruby Streaks has now become my favorite of the red mustards! It is easy to grow, it’s frilly leaf structure disguises most flea beetle damage, and produces prolific, easy-to-clean seed which then can be used for sprouting and ground mustards.
