Details

Mustards are underappreciated in the garden. This Asian variety is robust and beautiful. Its leaves are green with a deep purple hue, thin and very soft when steamed or sauteed. Its slight bite adds a pleasant tangy ring to any meal, complementing grains beautifully. Extremely easy to grow--and fast! Stays more mild flavored in cool weather; does quite well into late fall.
Number of Seeds 200 seeds
Spacing in Row 3 to 6 inches
Spacing Between Rows 12 inches
Planting Depth ¼ to ½ inch
Days to Germination 4 to 10 days
Days to Maturity 45 days
Height at Maturity 12 to 18 inches
Width at Maturity 8 inches
Sow under protection 4-6 weeks before last frost, thin to 1" for baby or 12-18" for mature leaves; or, transplant 12" apart 3 weeks before last frost. Fall crops are most successful: sow July-August. Spring-sown crops must be harvested young to beat bolting; they also may need row cover to protect against flea beetle damage. All Asian mustards will overwinter with protection and give delicious greens through January, at least.
