As its name suggests, the Purple Osaka Mustard has a mild peppery taste, and pairs well with salads and other greens. Both leaves and stems are edible either raw or cooked, and can be pickled, stir-fried or steamed.
As its leaves mature, the bright green leaves with purple stains intensify into a more vivid shade. The purple osaka mustard may be harvested as individual leaves or as a whole plant. A mild mustard taste, which intensifies with age, is noted in younger leaves. In other words, older leaves retain a more vivid mustard taste.
