Black Mustard with the scientific name Brassica juncea

The most mustard variety. Tasty and spicy as a sprout, though the flavour gets stronger, and hotter as it grows. As a microgreen it adds spiciness and a little heat to your dishes.

Mustard is a rich source of easy available minerals, including, calcium, manganese, copper, iron, selenium and zinc. Mustard is also high in cancer fighting carotenoids and flavonoids.

As sprouts they are best started in the dark for the first 48 hours and then brought into the light. As a microgreen, they can be started in a soil or cocopeat mix for the best nutritional value. You can start to harvest at the 2-true leaf stage for the highest nutritional benefit.

Mustard is usually grown in Microgreen Trays, preferably with a cocopeat mat to properly support the plant  (click here for Microgreen Kit. Once sowed it can be harvested after 10-14 days. You can harvest several times by cutting and letting it grow again. This can be done every 4-5 days for 3 or 4 cycles. 

 180 grams of Black mustard seed can cover up to 2-3 microgreens trays, depending on the density that you're looking for
