These grew really well in SE Louisiana in the fall through spring. We had more than we could eat, new leaves replaced the ones we cut super quickly. Grew well in shady part of the garden, and the plants did not bolt until late February (which is the end of spring here). Good mustard flavor but also mild in texture.

seed packet was nice and sealed, the seeds themselves had a reliable germination rate, grew well with very few problems. Would recommend to others.

We'd have work hard to screw up mustards. I directly sowed the seeds in early winter when it was still quite warm in Tallahassee. We had 99% germination. The plants lasted well into May.

VERY Productive and ABSOLUTELY Delicious

Don't overthink it, just buy these seeds and thank me later! The seeds germinated very quickly here in my Zone 8A garden and grew to an aw-inspiring size! Some of the leaves measured more than 10 inches wide with a height of over 18 inches. I allowed them to regrow after harvesting the outer leaves and that was the best way to go in my humble opinion. The taste was phenomenal and this variety will be a staple item in my garden for years to come.
