Mustard, Pizzo (Organic)

Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

Light green, extra curly salad leaf. Mild when baby and very hot when larger. A very winter hardy mustard that doesn’t flinch when pounded with cold rain or ice. Our first encounter with Pizzo was in a windy winter garden in Ireland and it was thriving through it all. Recommended to us as a winter salad variety by garden writer Joy Larkcom. Originally sourced from CN Seeds in England and we have been growing it here in Oregon for many years.

As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture & 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.

Seed Savings

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.
