Mustard Greens, 'Indian ','Black Winter'


Brassica juncea BRASSICACEAE
45 days. [Pre-1890 Virginia heirloom from the Alford family in Morrison, TN.] Any mustard lover would love this variety because of its unequaled flavor and attractive color. The medium sized leaves are very dark green with a dark brownish-bronze tinge on the outer edges. The fresh uncooked leaves are only mildly hot and have a sweet quality. When cooked, the leaves turn a darker green. Sow in the spring, or in the fall for winter greens. Seeds are small, about half the size of other mustards. Self-sows readily. Medicinal: Mustard acts as an irritant, rubefacient, and stimulant when used as a poultice for relieving muscular pain. Internally it is a stimulating diaphoretic taken as a tea.
