White Gold Mustard (OTT case 14-007)

Summary – ‘White Gold’ is a yellow condiment spice mustard (Sinapis alba L.) cultivar developed for use as a condiment spice by the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station and released in April 2014. White Gold is an open-pollinated cultivar selected for high adaptation to the dry-land environments of the Pacific Northwest (Idaho, Oregon and Washington). The cultivar was developed from a population selected from an accession (SIN 32/77) supplied by the Central Institute of Genetics and Crop Plant Research in the German Democratic Republic (DDR), now the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research. The original breeding population was evaluated in the field during 1994, and further replicated field evaluation began using this seed source in 1995. After the initial evaluation, the population was re-designated as SN-3277 (i.e. Sinapis alba 3277) and later as UI.3277.

UI.3277 was evaluated as a bulk population over 4 years in local yield trials and thereafter tested in the Pacific Northwest Regional Mustard Variety Trials (PNWMVT) from 1998-2001. Throughout this time the population bulk showed good adaptability with yield potential, bright colored large yellow seeds and with good pungency.
