(Brassica rapa) Large, crumpled leaves with highly curled margins. Young leaves add an interesting, slightly peppery flavor to salad mixes. We like to wilt the larger greens in butter along with some chard or spinach, adding a bit of soy sauce, salt and pepper. Of all the mustard varieties we've tried, this one is among the slowest to bolt. Does well in spring and fall with harvests extended into early winter when cold frames are used. 30-50 days to harvest. 500 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked. Plant seeds 1/4" deep, 1" apart in rows 18" apart. Germination will occur in 7-14 days. Once seedlings have emerged, thin to one plant every 3-6". A second sowing can be made approximately two months before first frost.
Within just a few days they were sprouting up! Very pleased with my purchases. All is growing well!
