Brown Mustard Seed

Brassica juncea. One of the most commonly used of all spices, Brown Mustard Seed is the base of the condiment Mustard. Our Brown Mustard Seed is very pungent, the type used as the base for the more spicy and biting European Mustards like Dijon or even Indian Mustards. Easy to grow, Brown Mustard Seed is best direct-sown in well-draining, fertile soil as soon as the ground can be worked in early spring, or in late summer for fall harvest. Growing to about 3' tall, it is a prolific and hardy annual with nice yellow flowers that bloom in the summer. Once the seed pods form and plump up, harvest them before they open and drop off. Hang the pods to dry them until they turn brown. Then, thresh them and use the prized seed in your favorite recipes. Hardy annual. (OP.)

Average seed life: 4 years.
