What are the pros? Beautiful in garden.
What are the cons? None
Beautiful and fast growing. Seed sowed on May 3, 2019, in zone 5. Harvested then June 15. Mixed with collards and canned southern style greens, delicious! Will sow more for fall crop.

What are the pros? Self sows, slow to bolt
What are the cons? Bugs occasionally like it, too
The Japanese Mustard that self-seeded grew more easily than the row I seeded. I love volunteers. This is hardy and slow to bolt. I will leave some plants alone to hopefully self-sow again this year. Growth rate outpaces bug depredations.

What are the pros? Not a single pest all winter
What are the cons? We had more than we could eat
I started three types of mustard greens in September 2018, Green Wave, Giant Red, and another that I can't remember. They germinated quickly. Once in the ground I paid them little attention due to the thick smoke from the Paradise fire. Like kale, mustard tastes best after some frosts. I started picking in December and they grew faster than I could eat. I never found a single insect on any of the mustard. The Red Giant definitely has the best flavor and is still producing in April. The two other mustards have already bolted. Don't eat the leaves raw like kale. Mustard tastes much better when saut?ed or added to soups. My favorite recipe is so easy. Add olive oil and chopped garlic in a medium hot pan. After a minute add the mustard. It takes just a few minutes for the mustard to wilt and cook through. We found a recipe online that was like a mustard lasagna and one with bacon. All these recipes are excellent with corn bread. Mustard Greens are beyond healthy so give it a try!

What are the pros? Grows extremely large
What are the cons? Strong flavor
This plant came in a lettuce mix from a farm stand and when it went to seed it self seeded. It has wonderful growth. I have found you can dehydrate the leaves to use for soups in the cold months and the sharp taste disappears! I only use small amounts of this in my fresh salads, but love that it becomes so mild when dehydrated and used in soups.
What are the pros? Grows well, strong spicy taste
What are the cons? nothing
Amazing plant, big leafs and really tenter.
