Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil early spring through late fall. Transplant into the garden to 6” centers, about 3-4 weeks after sprouting. May also be direct sown. Gets very spicy in summers heat. Also a good choice for winter gardens in our area.
Collect seeds from 20 or more plants when seedheads are dry. Place seed stalks on a tarp, dance to thresh. Collect seeds and winnow to clean. Isolate from other Brassica juncea by 1⁄2 mile.
