Mustard is a slightly hairy annual with a robust enzyme count.
It has a very high germination rate and it grows quickly.
The only slow part of the process is waiting for the seed to mature.
Once crushed, the aroma of the Mustard seeds is very sturdy, and it makes an extremely good ‘every day’ mustard.
Medicinally, we use the seeds for stimulation of the circulation, bronchitis and rheumatism and the leaves for bladder infections.
Black Mustard is quite simply a colour variation and the taste of the mature seed is enjoyable. Black Mustard is the correct variety for the Homeopathic remedy.
