20 days for greens. 40-60 days for seeds. Grown for
the leaves, flower buds and seeds. Direct seed once a month
from early spring through fall. It is extremely cold tolerant,
vigorous and will grow in almost any kind of soil. The plants
will grow 4-5' tall if they are allowed to mature. Use the
leaves in salads or like mustard greens. Eat the unopened
flower buds like broccoli. Use the seeds for oil. It also makes
an excellent cover crop. It can also be grown in trays of soil
indoors as a sprout.
Best planted as a fall crop, should be planted in
cultivated garden soil, covered 1/4 to1/2" deep. Seeds can be
broadcasted and raked in same way as greens are.
