This has been my favorite mustard cultivar for over 75 years. It has large curled/frilly leaves, which are very tender and moderately pungent. It will not stand temperatures where the ground freezes, but it tolerates temperatures into the 20's F. Grows well and tastes good. What more could one ask? In my youth, most folks called it Ostrich Plume.
