Florida Broadleaf Mustard is an old-time favorite, prized for its lush, large, tender green leaves with a robust mustard flavor. Reaching maturity in 48 days, Florida Broadleaf will be one of the first greens of the season. Perfect for salads or cooked dishes, these mustard greens are a southern garden staple. Even in the heat of Florida, this variety remains remarkably resistant to bolting. Its generous yields will keep you harvesting this garden giant all season long! Open-pollinated and non-GMO, the Florida Broadleaf is an excellent addition to any garden, from home growers to market farmers.
Since mustard greens thrive in cool weather, they taste best when grown as an early spring or fall crop. Direct sow seeds outdoors in spring or summer, planting them ¼ inch deep in well-draining soil. Space seeds about 1 inch apart and thin seedlings to 6-12 inches apart when they have a few true leaves. Plant in full sun to partial shade and provide regular water, keeping the soil evenly moist. Fertilize with a balanced organic fertilizer as needed.
