Tanzania mustard seed (from Brassica carinata) is the oil-containing produce of a nutritious vegetable. The plant doubles as a leafy green, but its primary purpose is the extraction of oil from the seed. It has also received acclaim as a possible biofuel. In 2012, for instance, a US plane flew by 100 percent biofuel from this plant, but further research is required to make the fuel economical. The mustard first grew in the Ethiopian highlands about 2000 B.C. Locals would pound the seeds into a mash for use as a salad. They would also feature the leaves in local foods the same way as spinach. Its taste is mild taste, but spices like garlic can improve it.

We source Tanzania mustard seed from Lukosi, Hembeti and Lushoto districts of the country. Here, our family growers plant the crop next to kales and maintain it through farmyard manure. They keep the crop free of chemical sprays as much as possible to reduce high residual levels.
We harvest Tanzania mustard seed when the pods have changed into a brownish color, and the leaves turn yellowish. This is just the right time before the pods burst and release the seeds. The locals sometimes keep the blossom heads in a polythene paper for two weeks after which they collect seeds that will have by then burst open. On our part we immediately use hand means to remove the seeds of the pods by unzipping them. If harvesting the leaves, we pluck them early when they are mature and are yet to turn yellow. We keep them in the dark, airtight containers after each harvest to preserve their color and aroma.
