For spring planting, 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 cool, 40°For less. Mustard grown in hot weather or long days will bolt and go to seed fairly quickly.

Sow mustard seed 1/4"  inch deep; when seedlings are large enough to handle thin them from 4 to 8 inches apart; space rows 12 to 24 inches apart.

Mustard can easily be grown in a container. Broadcast seeds over the soil surface and cover lightly with soil. Thinning's can be eaten.

CLASSIFICATION:  Open Pollinated, Heirloom, Non-Gmo, Annual

Open pollinated means this plants flowers are fertilized by bees, moths, birds, bats, and even the wind or rain. The seed that forms produces the same plant the following year. 

All heirlooms are open pollinated, but not all open pollinated plants are heirlooms. Only a small fraction of the plant world is considered heirloom. This variety has a history of being passed down within communities and families as early as the 1700's, similar to the generational sharing of items like jewelry or furniture.
