Bau Sin mustard seeds produce a broad-leaf Chinese green that is popular in Taiwanese cuisine. Bau-Sin is unique in that it is one of the only mustard varieties that will form a head if the temperature is right. The leaves and stalks are dark green, and may curl inwards to form a head in cooler weather. Sow this rare mustard at any time of year, but to get the head to form, sow in late summer for harvest in late fall and over the winter. Leaves are crispy and tender - the mildest and sweetest of all mustard greens. Bau-Sin mustard grows well in coastal gardens.
Matures in 40-50 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
