Mustard Black - 150+ Seeds

This annual culinary herb is well-known as the old-fashioned mustard that gave the condiment its start. Quickly grown from Mustard seeds, the Mustard plant produces ground herb seeds and is used to spice many different foods. The mustard seeds are tiny, hard and vary in colour from dark brown to black. The plant size can range from 60cm to 90cm inches in height, depending on the conditions where it is growing. 

The Black Mustard herb plant has a sturdy stalk with wrinkled, lobed, and dark green leaves. Yellow, 4-petaled flowers appear on spikes in early summer. Both the seed and the greens of this herb plant are used. The greens can be cooked or steamed, but as the summer gets hotter, the greens get stronger with a bitter taste. Black Mustard plants are often grown in two crops during the season to keep a supply of the young greens. Black Mustard seeds come in the summer heat as the plant bolts. Harvest the seed to prevent the herb seeds from falling on the ground and producing too much growth for the next season. Black Mustard is a prolific self-sower. 

How To Grow Black Mustard Seeds: Start Mustard seeds directly outdoors a couple of weeks before the end of frost season. Prepare a seedbed with a lot of organic matter added to the soil and cover the herb seeds with 15-20mm of soil. 

Propagation notes will be supplied with a seed packet.
