Brassica juncea
Southern Giant Curled Mustard (56 days)



What an excellent mustard this is!  Leafy large green leaves are frilled and prolific.  Southern Giant has an excellent flavor packed full of vitamins A, B, and C!  Slow to bolt.  Typically used later in the season for its superior cold tolerance. 
 

Don't be fooled that this just a Southern dish.  Mustard greens grow well just about anywhere.  We treat them here as an early spring or late fall planting because the cool weather produces a tastier leaf.  Ya don't have to throw hog jowls in them to make them taste good either!  We use the young leaves fresh in salads and later in the winter we use them in soups. 

 

A  favorite for canning and freezing. 

Mustards are a lot like kale in their use.  Yes, they are a bit better suited to warm weather, but here on the Pacific Coast we can get away with growing them almost all year long.  What does that mean?  A VERY important vitamin packed food source for not only us, but the animals as well.  Remember to never give rabbits too much of any of the brassica (kale, mustard, broccoli, etc..) family.  Makes them....well...a bit gaseous.  We never give any one rabbit more than a leaf a day, but it is still excellent for them.

Planting Tips:

In sping or fall, sow directly into soil 1/8” deep about 1“ apart.  Keep well watered.  For additional crops, sow a new patch every 20-30 days.

Seeding Rate: 32,000 plants/acre, aproximately 2 lb.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
