Detailed Product Info

A new, very spicy leafy Indian mustard hailing from Hawaii. This little plant packs quite a punch, making it quite popular among our mustard loving staff this summer. Fall crops, when properly spaced, will form a tight heart. Originally selected in Hawaii to be white rust resistant, a great choice for warm, wet climates in addition to the cooler spring and fall seasons of the north-east. Best when grown in temperatures under 90 degrees. Is quite cold hardy, but needs to be sown 3 weeks prior to fall frost so the plants are well established.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow beginning 2-3 weeks before last frost. Can be sown straight through until the end of August, though late spring sowings can bolt early and be taken by flea beatles; consider using row cover. Sow more densely than indicated for baby clippings. Harvest whole head--not really a cut-and-come-again green. Superb in fall and winter.
