Mustard, Green in Snow (Organic)

$3.50$32.00

Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

This is our favorite winter mustard. It grows vigorously for us throughout the winter, bouncing back easily after our lows of 8°F. Very hot when raw, the heat all but disappears when cooked and leaves you with a good balanced mustardy flavor. Excellent pickled, simply by packing in a jar with some salt. Also known by its Chinese name, Shi-Li- Hon.

Seed produced by Deep Harvest Farm, on Whidbey Island, Washington.

As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested and found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.

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.
