This cool-season green adds a peppery zing to salads, and makes an attractive addition to ornamental plantings. When plants bolt, harvest flowers and seedpods for salads, too.

Growing Guide
GROWING NOTES
Benefits from some shading during warm weather.

Prefers well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil. Needs plentiful, consistent moisture.

Some varieties have contrasting white or purples stems and veins, or have crinkled or savoyed leaves.

MAINTAINING
From early spring to late summer, sow seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep, 1 inch apart in rows 6 to 8 inches apart. Thin to 6-inch spacings for smaller varieties, or up to 18 inches for large ones.

Plant every 2 weeks for continuous harvest. Some plantings may bolt quickly in response to increasing temperatures and day length. High temperatures and lack of moisture increase peppery taste.

Use floating row covers to help protect from early insect infestations.

To help reduce disease, do not plant mustards or other cole crops in the same location more than once every three or four years.
