Mustard, Spicy Curls (Organic)

$3.50$32.00

Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

A very diverse and strikingly beautiful mix of curly and wavy, mostly red and purple leaves with good moderate heat. Great for salad or bunching greens. A favorite of ours for winter cooked greens, the heat vanishes once cooked and the rich flavor remains. Bred in Oregon by Tim Peters of Peters Seed and Research for more cold hardiness and disease resistance than other mustards.

Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.

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.
