Easy to grow, slow to bolt. An old Southern heirloom that produces large, upright plants with lots of rugole (crumpled) leaves. Delicious mustard “bite” and flavor and plants that are surprisingly long lasting. Known for its big yields of zesty, bright-green leaves. Grows almost anywhere and is cold-tolerant. A Southern staple when slow-cooked, but also good in salads when picked small. Excellent in Asian stir-fries. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.

Ever since I was a child my mom grew this mustard. She would direct sew for her fall garden. Bringing in basketfuls to freeze and to can for our winters, plus for fresh eating. It has a wonderful flavor. Pair this up with some cornbread and you are set.

Cannot wait to grow !
I bought these as I did not have any mustard green seeds ! Scandalous right !? I’m so excited to begin to grow this ! My granny ( great grandmother ) used to harvest wild mustard greens from the field across from her house , we were always blessed with greens ! Thank you for carrying quality seeds !
