Neither Green Wave nor Red Giant are hairy. They are similar in texture to arugula, or maybe endive? Less tender than spinach or lettuce, but more tender than mature turnip top greens.

Here's Greens in Snow mustard planted at 9/sq. Many of these leaves will soon be finding their way into a soup pot, for some sort of Asian chicken soup.

And this is Ruby Streaks, also planted at 9/sq (I plant Red Giant and Green Wave at 4/sq), which I will eventually use in salads. I prefer it for salads because it's already sort-of cut "fine", so the flavor is in small tingly pieces with less work.

Good looking mustard. What will you cook it with? And do you recall which variety of mustard these are? ^

Florida broadleaf. I usually mixed with other greens in a salad or soft cooked them with other greens. I also juice them with other greens, which I will do today.

 If so, it's "Japanese giant red mustard greens" and I dearly LOVE it and your right about tasting like horseradish. I can't walk past it without snacking on it.  It's also great on a bologna samich with onions and mayo. I have 5 mustard green plants growing throughout my SFG's. It's really a beautiful plant and scrump-dilly-
Yes!  That is exactly the one!  Sounds like I should wait til Fall, am I right?
The taste will mellow after a good frost.
So should I wait until August to plant?  How do you space it?  Some say 4/square?

The name says it all.. "Japanese giant".  I planted one plant in a 1/2 whisky barrel last year and it covered the whole thing. I would think it would be a little late to plant from seed now.

Yes it is cold tolerant and I think I started mine in August last year. I'll check my records when I get back home.

I'm leaning towards 1/SF for longer term plantings of the giant. I do 4/SF for Green Wave, and 9 for the shorties like mizuna.

My notes say "8/3 Sow Mustard M4 if highs below 85*F" (M4 means my 4th succession on my version of a chart like in the back of the ANSFG book)  If you have space, and already have seeds, maybe you can squeeze in a batch now since you're northerly: Do you have about 5 weeks before your temps average 75*F?

Definitely cold tolerant! lots o Over-wintered here in central PA with cover, and exploded once there was enough daylight. Bolting at this point, of course, because they've experienced a solid winter plus some unseasonably warm weeks, but I got plenty of leaves off of them. I even have some volunteers from the mustard I let flower for the bees last year.

NnnnjjjjNo, I think normal temps will be way under 75 ish.

Here we seem to go from 40 to 80 in a week.  I think I will wait til fall.  Can't wait!  bounce
