Spicy Green Mustard
Brassica juncea 30 days. This mustard knocked our socks off with a zesty flavor reminiscent of wasabi. Frilly, vibrant green leaves are delicious raw in a salad (we love them with a sesame ginger vinaigrette), and work just as well in an autumn stir-fry. Leaves can be harvested at the baby stage or when full-sized.

CULTURE: Chinese cabbage, pac choi and mustard greens are easy crops to grow if planted in early spring or late summer. They prefer cooler weather, so mid-summer plantings often lead to premature bolting. These greens are best sown directly into a fertile, well-dug, smooth seedbed. Mark your rows 18-24 inches apart. Make a furrow 6 inches deep and sprinkle 1/2 cup of our complete fertilizer per 10 row feet in the bottom of the furrow. Backfill the furrow and plant the seed 1/4 inch deep. Days to emergence: 2-15. Optimum soil temperature for germination: 40-75°F. Keep the bed uniformly moist. Thin to a distance of 6-12 inches between plants. If transplanting, use 1/2 cup of our complete fertilizer around each plant.
INSECTS: Watch for flea beetles. Cover with Reemay or Grow Guard 20, or spray regularly with Pyrethrin.
SEED SPECS: Approximately 450 seeds per gram.
