Mibuna Mustard Greens (41 Days)

This strap leaf Asian green is a great addition to braising mixes. The long thin leaves resemble those of dandelions but mibuna is easier and faster to grow. The mild mustardy flavor also serves as a slightly spicy addition to salads. 

100 seeds

    Mibuna Mustard

    Seemed to germinate well. I enjoy the taste. Perhaps it was a fluke but there were not many seeds in the packet. I'd like to see half again as much seed for the price.

    Mibuna Review

    I slipped on a tiny patch of ice on April 19, 2018, broke my right ankle. It is now June 2...cast replaced two days ago with a boot. I will be lucky if I can use my leg in two weeks...still in pain. Needless to say, my plans for veggie garden went up in smoke. It will likely be too warm to sow any seeds and expect happy results here in southern MN? I have always loved this company, having ordered seeds from them for some years...terrific staff...wonderful variety of offerings.

    Mibuna Review

    I had only one plant germinate, but didn't plant many seeds last spring (2017) intending to sow a few seeds throughout the summer, but didn't. It was in a partially shaded area of my veggie garden. I will try it again, perhaps in a more sunny area What little I tasted of it was delicious. The mizuna I had sown was prolific and wonderful.
