Mustard Greens

  1. A Description of Mustard Greens

    History: Mustard greens are members of the brassica family and are native to eastern Asia, where they have been grown for over 2000 years. Not to be confused with the mustard that produces mustard seed, these cold-hardy plants are valued for their spicy leaves, with different varieties producing different degrees of heat. They are a favourite ingredient in mesclun mixes. Cultivation: mustard greens don't like their roots disturbed, so should be direct sown in early spring or late summer by lightly covering the seed. They tend to bolt in the heat of mid-summer. Thin to 12" apart. Companions: nasturtiums, onion, dill and borage all deter insect pests, especially the cabbage moth, the bane of brassicas.
