Early Mizuna Mustard - Organic


Early Mizuna Mustard - Organic

(40 days) Brassica rapa (japonica group) Open-pollinated. Recommended for northland salad enthusiasts, this vigorous heirloom Japanese mustard produces slender white stalks with deeply cut and fringed dark green leaves, not at all pungent. One planting could suffice for full-season production if watered in dry spells and kept cut, though a few will bolt in September. Many folks will prefer to make three or more succession plantings because the young leaves are the most tender. Biennial. Essential in mild mesclun and great for microgreens. Tested negative for BR and BL.
