Green leafy plant, popular for Indian cooking. Grow fast with plenty of water and regular feeds of liquid manure to avoid bitterness.
Southern Giant has an excellent flavor packed full of vitamins A, B, and C! Slow to bolt. Typically used later in the season for its superior cold tolerance.
Easy to grow.
Harvest in 40-60 days
Sow in garden. Sow seed at a depth approximately three times the diameter of the seed.
Best planted at soil temperatures between 10°C and 35°C.
Space plants: 35-60cm
Sow directly into soil 1/8” deep about 1“ apart. Keep well watered. For additional crops, sow a new patch every 20-30 days.
Maintenance and care:
sow seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep, 1 inch apart in rows 6 to 8 inches apart. Thin to 6-inch spacings for smaller varieties, or up to 18 inches for large ones.
Plant every 2 weeks for continuous harvest. Some plantings may bolt quickly in response to increasing temperatures and day length. High temperatures and lack of moisture increase peppery taste.
Use floating row covers to help protect from early insect infestations.
To help reduce disease, do not plant mustards or other cole crops in the same location more than once every three or four years.
