Mustard, Byrd (organic)
This heirloom variety’s leaves have the classic spice and sharpness of a good mustard green, and are more substantial in texture than other leafy greens. The glossy, highly toothed leaves gently cascade downward, making them an attractive addition to the vegetable garden. Packet of 250 seeds.
Jim Tjepkema received the variety from fellow Seed Savers Exchange member Dorothy Jones in 1990 and later donated it to their collection. The variety’s lineage can be traced to Georgia in 1839, through Dorothy’s husband’s ancestors.
