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

Common Yellow Mustard
Common Yellow Mustard contains high levels of glucosinolates, chemical agents that make certain members of the brassica family spicy. Glucosinolates also deliver a deadly punch to many soilborne pathogens, nematodes and weeds, making them an effective, all-natural alternative to chemical insecticides and herbicides
As a cover crop/ green manure, it’s a proven biofumigant that suppresses weeds, soilborne pathogens, and some harmful nematodes. The best part? It also nurtures your soil. Backed by 20 years of university research and on-farm results, Non-GMO Common Yellow Mustard is perfect for backyard gardens, vineyards, and small farms.
To incorporate the most nitrogen into the surface of your soil, give the crop 8-12 weeks to grow it's roots down deep, then chop up the flowers and leaves before the plant goes to seed.
This mustard has also been found to work very well by pumpkin growers, and others, as a fall cover crop to clear out any lingering soil born pathogens. It is also recomended to chop it up after the first snow, or frost, instead of just letting them die off and waiting for the spring thaw. This prevents "barb wire", and makes it easier on equipment when mixing it back into the soil.
