Fun Facts.

In the "World English Bible" Matthew 13:31-32 there is a parable of the mustard seed and how the kingdom of heaven grew from small beginnings.

The name "mustard", according to the theory, comes from the Latin words mustum for "must" and ardens for "hot".

Brown mustard and black mustard seeds are similar in size, but in fact brown ones have only 70% of the pungency of the black ones, when the enzyme is activated.
