Organic, known as lambs lettuce. Long, glossy, leaves form heavy bunches with a mild flavour. Vigorous variety for spring and fall crops as well as over-wintering. Resistant to mildew. 25-35 days for small leaves and 50 days to mature. The small, pretty, tender green leaves of this green form a rosette that is very cold hardy. It has a mild and nutty flavour and can be planted in early spring and again in late August. This extra cold-tolerant vegetable can withstand temperatures up to -29C. It can be used during winters although a cold frame or greenhouse should be used if freezing rain, wind, or heavy winds are a concern. Corn Salad is one of the best crops to grow when fresh salads are to be enjoyed over the winter months. These delightful European native plants grow in autumn and even in winter when fresh vegetables are scarce. It perishes quickly after picking, usually lasting only 2-5 days in a fridge, so it is best to pick and eat the same day.

Sow corn salad in early spring and in late August or September for fall and winter harvests. Seeds sprout in 7-21 days at temperatures of 5-18C. Sow seeds 1 cm apart in rows 20 cm apart. Then to 5 cm apart.
Corn salad prefers light fertile soil and can be sown in the fall after summer crops have been harvested. Grows well in containers.
Harvest by bunching leaves together and cut 2-4 cm above the stem so the plants can grow back. Since corn salad is a low growing vegetable all leaves need to be thoroughly washed before use.
Use Corn Salad like you would lettuce or spinach. Try replacing spinach with corn salad in your favourite recipe, including salads, pizza, frittatas, stir fry, or add it to your stew and soup. It goes particularly well with feta cheese.
