There are only very slight differences between all these three types of mustard seeds. When talking of brown and black mustard seeds, it is hard to make out the difference.

The distinction between black and brown mustard is hard as both the seeds have almost the similar characteristics.

But still one can make out several differences between the two mustard seeds.
