Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Braco mustard is a fantastic cover crop as most of the vineyards here in the wine country have discovered.
Braco mustard has been shown to suppress nematodes in beets and potatoes just to name a few. It has also been shown to increase yields in grains.
The reasons are many to use Braco mustard, but the primary reason is the production of high amounts of high protein green manure, suppression of nematodes and other soil borne organisms. There has even been some research to suggest weed suppression.
Further research has shown that Braco mustard releases a chemical very similar to cyanide that acts as a fumigant in the soil to kill nematodes if you can believe that!
