Lamb’s Lettuce Corn Salad Seeds 1465. Heirloom Vegetable.

Approx. 800 seeds/pkt (350 seeds/gram)

A popular European salad green. Dark green leaves form a low growing fancy rosette that is best harvested when young and before flowers appear. Leaves can be blanched (covered to prevent exposure to light) for three days before picking to reduce bitterness. Its vaguely nutty taste is improved by a light frost. Often called lamb’s lettuce and mache.

How to Grow

Direct sow seed every two weeks anytime in spring when soil temperatures range from 5-20 C (41-68 F). Sow seed 3 mm (1/8″) deep and 6 mm (1/4″) apart in rows 40 cm (16″) apart. Thin seed in the row to 10 cm (4″) apart. Best in a wind-sheltered site in full sun to light shade with deep, fertile soil. Once conditions get hot, corn salad will quickly bolt to seed.
