Mustard – Mighty Mix

$3.48

This Mighty Mustard Mix is a blend of green and purple mustards that ranges from flat to super frilly and from sweet Dijon to knock-your-socks-off spicy. The edible greens grow in a rosette of leaves up to about 46 cm (18″) tall. If the seeds are allowed to mature on the plant, they will self-sow and still provide plenty for mustard making.

Available only as seed.
