Brassica juncea (Chinese mustard vegetable)

Brassica juncea - It has pale green foliage, with a few hairs on the first leaves and leaf blades that terminate well up the petiole. Mature B. juncea plants grow to a height of one to two meters. The lower leaves are deeply lobed, while the upper leaves are narrow and entire. The inflorescence is an elongated raceme and the flowers are pale yellow and open progressively upwards from the base of the raceme. The seed pods are slightly appressed and 2.5 to 5 cm in length exclusive of the beak. The beak is 0.5 to 1 cm long. Seeds are round and can be yellow or brown. Vegetable growers sometimes grow mustard as a green manure. Its main purpose is to act as a mulch, covering the soil to suppress weeds between crops. If grown as a green manure, the mustard plants are cut down at the base when sufficiently grown, and left to wither on the surface, continuing to act as a mulch until the next crop is due for sowing, when the mustard is dug in. Family: Brassicaceae
