How to Grow Red Capital Mustard

Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. For spring planting, it's best to wait until a bit after the last frost, if planting directly in the garden. This variety can also be planted for a fall harvest, after the middle of July up to early fall. Ensure the plant has full sun. This plant grows very quickly, so be ready to harvest baby greens only about three weeks after planting. Extra plantings spaced a few weeks apart will keep the harvest going for a bit longer. Water regularly, moistening the ground and not the leaves. The flavor will vary a bit depending on the outside temperature, cooler = sweeter. Fertilize as needed, or use well composted soil.

Harvesting Red Capital Mustard
