Texel Greens

Description

Texel Greens are a really tasty salad green or stir fry vegetable. They are fast growing and very productive for cropping throughout the summer and contain a delicious mild mustard flavour.

 

The interest in what we have classed liberally as "Oriental Vegetables" increases every year. They can be used raw in salads, or lightly cooked for use in stir frys and numerous Chinese style meals. We hope you will be tempted to give something different a try.
