Green Wave Mustard Greens

40-60 days. Known for its luxurious, dark green, deeply frilled and curled leaves, Green Wave has a terrific, spicy-hot flavor. Growing as an upright plant to about 2' tall, it doesn't get quite as gritty and require as much washing as other shorter varieties. It is widely adaptable and resists bolting, so it can be grown in warmer climates. You can count on Green Wave to add its special, zingy flavor as a baby leaf to salads, nouvelle cuisine stir-fries or as a mature leaf in traditional stew pots. (OP.)

  • Information
  • The cornerstone of traditional Southern cooking and kitchen gardens, these leafy green vegetables include Mustard Greens, Collard Greens, Kale and Turnip Greens. Customarily simmered for hours with salt pork or ham hocks, the best way to preserve their wonderful flavors, textures and color is to quickly braise or saute them in olive oil and Garlic. Most Southern Greens prefer cool weather, although Collard Greens are wonderfully tolerant of summer heat. Direct sow Collard, Mustard and Turnip Greens outdoors in the early spring as soon as the soil can be worked and in the late summer for fall harvest.

    Average seed life: 4 years.
