MUSTARD GREENS GROWING GUIDE

Mustard greens have broad, wavy frilled leaves with longitudinal veins and a deep green color. The upright leaves are supported by coarse stems that can be quite fibrous when fully mature. Smaller leaves are considerably tenderer, while larger Mustard greens require cooking. They have a succulent yet crunchy texture and a robust flavor reminiscent of pepper and horseradish.

Mustard greens are also commonly referred to as Indian mustard, Chinese mustard, or leaf mustard, and botanically classified as Brassica juncea. It is a generic name that is applied to many different varieties, including white, green and red varieties. Mustard greens are of this genus should not be confused with those of the the Sinapis alba species, a completely different genus of mustard plants that is responsible for seed production used in making the eponymous condiment.

PLANTING

  • Mustard is cool-season leaf crop. Sow mustard as early as 4 to 6 weeks before the average last frost date in spring. Sow succession crops every 4 to 6 weeks. Mustard requires 30 to 40 days to reach harvest. Plant crops so that they come to harvest before temperature average greater than 75°F. Sow mustard in autumn or early winter in mild winter regions.
  • Seeds may be slow to germinate if the soil is too coo, 40°F or less. Mustard grown in hot weather or long days will bolt and go to seed.
  • Sow mustard seed ½ inch deep; when seedlings are large enough to handle thin them from 4 to 8 inches apart; space rows 12 to 24 inches apart.
  • Keep soil evenly moist to keep leaves growing quickly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Add aged compost to planting beds before sowing. Side dress plants with aged compost at midseason.

PLANT CARE

  • Keep planting beds weed free. Pull mustard from the garden as soon as it goes to seed to avoid prolific self seeding.

PESTS/DISEASES

  • Mustard can be attacked by flea beetles and aphids. Wash these pests away with a blast of water.
  • Mustard is susceptible to white rust. Remove leaves that have white rust. Water plants at the base of the stem keeping moisture off the leaves.

HARVEST/STORAGE

  • Pick individual leaves when they are young and tender, 3 to 4 inches long, or cut and use the entire plant. Complete the harvest before the weather grows hot; hot weather will cause leaves to become tough and strong flavored. Complete the harvest before the plant goes to seed.
