Description:
A close relative of mizuna, mibuna mustard, also known as Japanese mibuna (Brassica rapa var japonica ‘Mibuna’), is a highly nutritious Asian green with a mild, mustardy flavor. The long, slender, spear-shaped greens can be lightly cooked or added to salads, soups, and stir-fries. Growing mibuna is easy and, although the plants tolerate a certain amount of summer heat, Japanese mibuna prefers chilly weather. Once planted, mibuna greens thrive even when they’re neglected.


Growing Instructions (USDA Zones 1-9):
Prepare the soil with compost or organic matter. Prefers full sun or partial shade and grows best in temps between 45-75°F. Direct sowing works best about 4-6 weeks before the last average spring frost date. Plant Mibuna seeds about 1/2" deep and 12" apart. Germination occurs in about 2 weeks. For a fall crop, direct sow in July. Keep the soil evenly moist for healthiest growth. If the sun gets too hot, Chinese cabbage tends to bolt (got to seed). In long periods of intense heat, some shade may be helpful.
