Mustard leaves Some Oriental greens emphasise the hot mustard flavour. A variety usually sold as "Red Giant’ mustard has large red-flushed leaves but is often searingly hot, too overpowering to be used on its own, it is best blended with milder-tasting leaves, either as young plants in a salad or the larger leaves in a stir-fry. 'Green in the Snow’ is a low-growing and very fiery mustard, which is incredibly hardy, one of those crops you can literally brush the snow off to throw in among ordinary cabbage or kale to spice things up a bit. These are undeniably good-looking vegetables and their appearance on the plate or in the salad bowl is part of their appeal."
"SWEETs are key transporters for transporting photosynthates from leaves to seeds and we believe that the nectarial SWEET9 sugar transporter evolved around the time of the formation of the first floral nectaries, and that this process may have been a major step in attracting and rewarding pollinators and thus increasing the genetic diversity of plants" Frommer said
...Together, this important group of plants accounts for more than 10 percent of the world "s vegetable and vegetable oiloil production and, despite their apparent diversity, they are all closely related."
