Southern Mustard Greens Plant

Southern Mustard Greens Plant

People have been eating these greens for more than 5,000 years, starting in the Himalayan region of India.

plan when to plant in the spring, remember mustard will bolt and the taste will become bitterly hot once average temperatures reach 75°F or higher.

Simply count back from your variety’s estimated maturity date based on the local weather patterns, and sow accordingly.

In fall, you’ll have the opposite worry. While mustard will tolerate a light frost, a freeze will kill the plants.

Take into consideration how many days you have between the time the average temperature is consistently lower than 75°F in later summer or early fall, and the time of your average first hard freeze. That will tell you how late you can plant.
