The light brown seeds of the White Mustard are extensively used like those of the Black Mustard, but they are not so pungent, and are often mixed with them, on account of their milder nature. The plant is quite similar in many respects. It is covered, more or less, with stiff, spreading hairs, and grows only one or two feet high. The large, yellow flowers are nearly twice the size of the Black species, and the stems are rather stout and spreading. The circular, bristly seed pods are somewhat spreading, with a long, flat beak, and are narrowed between the seeds. The White Mustard ranges about the same as the Black Mustard.
