A close relative of mizuna, mibuna mustard, also known as Japanese mibuna (Brassica rapa var japonica ‘Mibuna’), is a highly nutritious Asian green with a mild, mustardy flavor. The long, slender, spear-shaped greens can be lightly cooked or added to salads, soups, and stir-fries. Growing mibuna is easy and, although the plants tolerate a certain amount of summer heat, Japanese mibuna prefers chilly weather. Once planted, mibuna greens thrive even when they’re neglected.

Growing Instructions:
8–12 weeks before the last spring frost, sow your Brunswick cabbage seeds indoors. Plant them in good soil 1/2 inch deep and 2 inches apart. Transplant your seedlings about 4 weeks before the last anticipated frost, spacing them 12 to 18 inches apart in rows 3 to 4 feet apart, and burying the stems about midway up. Direct sow or transplant seedlings in the middle of summer for a fall harvest. Avoid planting cabbage alongside pole beans or tomatoes for the benefits of companion planting; instead, plant it with aromatic herbs or potatoes. The damaging white cabbage moth can be repelled by herbs including thyme, peppermint, sage, and rosemary.
