Lime Streaks mizuna mustard garden seeds are a hardy cool weather crop best sown direct 4-6 weeks before final frost date, or can be started indoors for garden transplanting. Sow 5-6 Lime Streaks Mizuna seeds ¼” deep and 6-8” apart in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Mizuna seeds will require shade in warmer gardens during hot summer months. Brassica rapa seeds germinate in 3-7 days, thinning back to 1 plant every 12-18” in the garden once true leaves establish. Harvest large outer leaves while allowing smaller leaves to continue to mature.
Although a traditional Asian vegetable crop, Non-GMO heirloom Mizuna mustard greens are an important component to the French-made Mesclun Mix (Spring Mix), lending very well to other small and assorted greens such as baby spinach, dandelion greens, frisée, and radicchio.
