Sweet & Spicy Greens Seed Mix

This blend came about from a customer’s request wanting an orchestra of flavors from the sweet notes of lettuces countered by the bolder tones from arugula, kale, mizuna and tatsoi mustards with the middle balance filled with endive and radicchio. 

We experimented with several different mix ratios until we hit on the perfect harmony we named our Sweet & Spicy Greens mix.  

There’s plenty of leafy lettuces to bring the sweet notes in first, followed by the bold, peppery arugula that is moderated by the Red Russian kale, then the Asian mustards offer up their sweet and slightly spicy flavors. The middle area is filled with endive and radicchio adding their smooth yet robust, rich, nutty flavors supporting both the sweet and spicy highs. 

This is truly a one-planting salad that is a complete meal by itself, but robust enough to pair equally well with citrusy notes of finely diced preserved lemons with sprouted pumpkin seeds or roasted and salted sunflower seeds; or thinly sliced smoked fish or fowl, or even smoked slow-cooked bacon with curls of  sharp cheese. 

You can plant this blend from early spring all the way to early fall in areas without harsh winters. Works well as a cut-and-come-again mix, make sure to replant every 2-3 weeks for continuous harvests that keep the fresh, young greens flavors without turning too strong or bitter. For the longest shelf life, harvest greens early in the day.

    Great tasting and easy to grow

    I tried this seed for the first time last summer and it worked well. There was a great variety of seed and I was able to have several plantings or great tasting greens. The seeds did well in hot and cool weather.
