Yellow Mustard (Sinapis alba)
Sometimes referred to as white mustard, this easy to grow variety offers a mild, classic mustard flavor enjoyed on summer cuisine. The tall plants have spikes of dainty yellow flowers. Harvest pods when full, but before they split open or drop off. Air dry until brown and brittle, then thrash. The tender young greens add a savory bite to summer salads. As a cover crop, yellow mustard will suppress damaging soil borne pathogens while adding a hefty does of green biomass to your garden beds.
