Mustard 'Ruby Streaks'

Dark maroon leaves streaked with flashy green stems make this sweet mustard a striking garden highlight as well as salad addition. Harvest baby leaves from 21 days, reaching full maturity in under 6 weeks.

How to grow

Greens in the cabbage family need rich soil with some lime for a pH of about 7.5 and adequate water so the growth is never checked. A good cover of mulch will insulate them from hot, dry spells of weather. Their most damaging pest are the caterpillars of the white cabbage butterfly. Dipel, derris dust and pyrethrum are all effective organic controls for these voracious pests.
