Mustard, Mizuna Early (Brassica rapa) - 100 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 3-12
This early maturing Japanese mustard, also known as kyona mizuna, has a very mild mustard flavor. This milder flavor makes it more suitable for salads for those that don't like the typical spiciness associated with raw mustards. It has long slender stems and dark green, serrated leaves. Both cold and heat tolerant and slow to bolt, it is a vigorous green that branches prolifically. Suitable for harvesting at any stage, microgreens to mature plants. Cut-and-grow-again methods apply to this vegetable. Mizuna has become very popular as a salad green and is also delicious cooked. Mustards are potent soil fumigants. Incorporating the residues of mustard crops into your soil can reduce fungal diseases in your succession crop.
In early spring, plant just below the surface of the soil. This seed germinates best at temperatures from 40-55 degrees F (4-13 degrees C). Keep the soil lightly moist until germination occurs, which usually takes place within 7-10 days. This seed also germinates well in late fall for a late season crop. Water occasionally and keep weeds down. This plant grows well in many soil types, and tolerates cold temperatures very well. It also grows well in containers. The leaves can be harvested for fresh greens starting at 4 weeks. For the best taste, harvest leaves about 4" long; leave at least 1" growing since this will enable the plant to continue producing leaves. Choose leaves that are crisp and show no sign of discoloration. Store the leaves in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
