Brassica alba or Sinapsis alba

90 days to seed harvest.  Native to China, white mustard seeds are a popular source for condiment mustard as they make a milder mustard than yellow, black, or brown mustard seeds. Plants bolt quickly producing a profuse amount of yellow flowers which yield surprising amounts of cream colored mustard seeds. A small 5 X 5' space yields enough to keep you in mustard until the following season!

Make the flavor complex by mixing with homegrown 'Dijon' mustard!

Direct sow around the last frost date. Harvest seeds by clipping upper part of plant which bears seeds into a large bag. Agitate bag to free seeds from pods. Use a fan to separate chaff from seeds. Grind with a coffee or grain grinder to produce mustard powder. Hydrate with vinegar, wine, or beer to make your own mustard sauce!
