Mustard Black Seeds (Brassica Nigra) 200+Seeds
The Black Mustard herb plant has a sturdy stalk with wrinkled, lobed, and dark green leaves. Yellow, 4-petaled flowers appear on spikes in early summer. Both the seed and the greens of this herb plant are used. The greens can be cooked or steamed, but as the summer gets hotter, the greens get stronger with a bitter taste. Black Mustard plants are often grown in two crops during the season to keep a supply of the young greens. Black Mustard herb seed comes in the summer heat as the plant bolts. Black Mustard is a prolific self-sower. Harvest the seed to prevent the herb seeds from falling on the ground and producing too much growth for next season.
