Mizuna Mustard - Seeds & Bulbs

Mizuna Mustard
Sui Cai, Xiu CAI
(Brassica rapa)

Commonly used both as a graceful bedding plant that 'floats' in the flower beds and as a sweet, mild mustard green that is ready to harvest in 3 weeks and will withstand heat longer than lettuce without bolting. The looks are deceptive: Beautiful, graceful, and prolific, but definitely tasty. Plants germinate under cold and wet spring conditions

Days to Emerge: 5 to 15
