Giant Southern Curled

60 days — As its name implies, the leaves of 'Giant Southern Curled' mustard are large, oval-shaped, and have fringing on the edges. It is slow to bolt (go to seed) and is long standing in the field. Over the decades it has also been sold as, "Southern Giant Curled" and "Ostrich Plume."

A popular Southern variety that was introduced commercially in the later part of the 19th century, it has remained popular among gardeners ever since. It makes an interesting and excellent addition to salad mixes but adding texture and a slightly pungent, not bitter, flavor. It is also a nice choice for "baby greens." Here is what H. G. Hastings said about it in their 1919 catalog:
"No spring garden is complete without a little patch of mustard for early salad. Our Giant Southern Curled is the very best of the finely curled leaf strains, really beautiful enough to grace a flower garden. It is slightly pungent, crisp and tender and can be eaten like lettuce or boiled for "greens." The Hastings' strain of Southern Curled is the same as offered by one or more leading northern houses as "Ostrich Plume." If you like mustard for either spring or fall planting you will be pleased with this variety."
Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 350 seeds.
