Mysql TLSv1 capture using Wireshark

I installed mysql and enabled SSL on it. And I was just wondering how to see if the encryption is really working. I dont know what SSL protocol mysql uses for encryption.

So I started wireshark and captured login using a remote machine.

The default capture will show you the protocol as mysql,

but inorder to see the SSL/TLS you need to decode the packets as SSL. The SSL handshake does not occur first, but is followed after a few mysql packet exchanges.
