How to Grow Japanese Giant Garnet Mustard
Sow the seeds in the early spring, three weeks before the last frost. In temperate climates, also sow in the fall as the weather begins to cool. Water infrequently and deep. Watering early in the day allows excess moisture to dry out and avoid the development of fungal diseases. Kill and/or till in the mustard a minimum of 3 weeks prior to planting any other crop in the same spot. Mustard plants tolerate droughts well due to their deep root systems that can extend as far as 5 feet down, seeking water and nutrients.
Harvesting Japanese Giant Garnet Mustard
Cut off individual leaves at any stage of growth. The greens are delicious when harvested from brand new seedlings until the flower emerges. The leaves get tough and over-pungent after the flower appears. For a continual harvest, do not remove more than 1/3rd of the plant’s size at one time. For one large harvest, cut the plant down to the ground. Work any leftover roots or foliage into the soil for next year’s crops.
Commonly used as a salad green, the pungent taste of hot mustard gives a depth of flavor to a salad mix that no other green can supply. It can also be lightly steamed or sauteed and cooks very quickly. Mustard is not suitable as animal feed.
