Sinapis arvensis (wild mustard) reaches on average 20–80 centimeters (7.9–31.5 in) of height, but under optimal conditions can exceed one meter. The stems are erect, branched and striated, with coarse spreading hairs especially near the base.
Flowering Period: May to September
Sinapis Arvensis Habitat:
It grows in the plains and mountains, in pastures, fields, roadsides, but mainly in cultivated places. It prefers calcareous soils in sunny places, at an altitude of 0–1,400 meters (0–4,593 ft) above sea level. The flowers are pollinated by various bees and flies (entomophily). Sinapis arvensis is the host plant of the caterpillars of some Lepidoptera, such as the small white, Pieris rapae.
The leaves of Wild Mustard are edible and delicious at the juvenile stage of the plant. Once the seeds are ground, they produce a kind of seasoning with a similar flavor to mustard.
"And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you." Matthew 17:20
