  • Mustard, Dragon Tongue / Ho Mi Z

    Mustard, Dragon Tongue / Ho Mi Z (Organic)

    5 out of 5
    $3.25$9.00
    Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

    Hands down the most beautiful red mustard for salad mix. The leaf color is green and purple, hard to describe, and reminiscent of the 1990s fractal posters that Sarah had in her room as a teenager. Very slow to bolt in spring, it has the perfect balance of sweet and spicy flavors. Sizes up enough to be used in stir-fry. Bred by Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seeds in Philomath, Oregon, and renamed Dragon Tongue by Eleanor O’Brien of Persephone Farm in Lebanon, Oregon. It is Frank’s favorite fall mustard and Andrew’s favorite spring mustard. Selected from a cross between Horned and Miike mustards.

    Seed produced by Wild Garden Seeds in Philomath, Oregon.

  • Frizzy Lizzy Mustard
    NEW!

    Mustard, Frizzy Lizzy (Organic)

    $3.25$6.00
    Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

    At this point in our farming careers, it takes a lot for a spicy mustard to impress us enough to decide to add it to the catalog. Frizzy Lizzy did just that – in the winter of 2014 (lows to 5ºF) we trialed ten B. juncea mustards in a very low-light, poorly drained section of our field. Frizzy Lizzy is the only one that survived. Perhaps its skeletal leaf shape has something to do with it. Maybe it’s because it’s especially dark red, which seems correlated to winter hardiness. Or maybe it just got lucky. Whatever the case, we were impressed enough to decide to plant it for a seed crop the following year. Best as a baby green, it adds a good spicy element, lovely color, and some bulk to salads.

  • Mustard, Green in Snow

    Mustard, Green in Snow (Organic)

    $3.25$12.00
    Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

    Also known by its Chinese name Shi-Li-Hon. This is our favorite winter mustard. It grows vigorously for us throughout the winter, bouncing back easily after our lows of of 8ºF. 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.

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

  • Mustard, Oak Fire

    Mustard, Oak Fire (Organic)

    $3.25$12.00
    Brassica juncea. 20 days baby, 40 days full.

    A mix of gorgeous mustard greens perfect for salad mix. To quote the Urban Dictionary, “a transcendent beauty that forever consumes the hearts and minds of any who gaze at its stunning perfection.” Yes, that is a little hyperbolic for describing a mustard, but the excellent flavor, oak-shaped red and purple leaves with good moderate heat are hard to beat. Great for salad or bunching greens. Oak Fire has been our go-to spicy green for all salad mixes. Bred in Oregon by Tim Peters of Peters Seed and Research for more cold hardiness and disease resistance than other red mustards. We have seen young plants go through 10°F with no snow cover or row cover.

  • pizzo mustard

    Mustard, Pizzo (Organic)

    $3.25$12.00
    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 ever since.

  • Mustard, Spicy Curls

    Mustard, Spicy Curls (Organic)

    $3.25$12.00
    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.
