Product Description:

Brassica juncea 40 days. The bracing spice of wasabi is one of our very favorite flavors and we've found that taste once again in this extraordinary mustard. Wasabina's extremely frilly, serrated leaves offer a great textural addition to dishes, and its mild, sweet spice is absolutely delicious. Fully grown, these cold-tolerant plants reach 10 inches tall and wide and were among the last of the mustards to bolt in our winter trials.
