Product Overview

Brassica rapa subsp. nipposinica

Adapted over many years, this is the perfect mustard green for mescluns with a slight peppery flavor. Tolerates cold and heat. Commonly used as an ornamental.

A graceful plant in flower beds and containers, and also a tender, mildly spicy, Japanese mustard green that is milder than other mustards, and ready to harvest in as little as 3 weeks. Beautiful and prolific, and withstands heat longer than lettuce without bolting. Use fresh in salads, steam, or stir-fry. Seeds will germinate under cold and wet spring conditions.

Variety Info

Mustard leaves are mildly spicy and slightly peppery. Mizuna is a type of Japanese mustard. One plant can produce as many as 200 stems with thin, serrated leaves. It is prized as much for its ornamental value as its culinary value.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended; transplant stress can cause plants to bolt (prematurely flower).

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, when soil temperature is at least 40°F, ideally 60°–75°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 10 to 12 weeks before your average first fall frost date for continuous harvest. Mild Climates: Sow in late fall through winter for cool–season harvest.
