SAWI KERITING - CURLY MUSTARD

This is the new collection of Brassica that grow well on my garden.
We call it 'Sawi Keriting' or curly mustard.


Ya... the young leaves look so curly, but the older looks flatter and more green.


I sowed ten seeds for a trial and all germinated.
The seedling grow so well, and now we are seeing so many beautiful rose-shape plants on my garden.


The leaves are so crispy and sweet...
I pick the older leaves repeatedly.


I have made so many dishes from this mustard.
Soup, noodle-salad, steamed with peanut sauce or just stir fry.


Such a lovely plant...
We really love it, almost everyday we pick the leaves for our daily meal.


As long, I didn't meet bugs yet (I hope never...)
The picture above is a row of curly mustards on my eastern balcony.
They look so nice, and so promising.
They will provide greens as vitamins and minerals source for my family.

    1. I think it's almost similar. But Swiss Chard have a slimmer stem, and this one the stem is wider and flatter .
      Have a wonderful weekend, Linda!
