Valerianella olitoria

This cold tolerant plant is among the softest & most tender of all greens. The mild nutty flavor of its 7.5 cm leaves makes an excellent addition to salads & garnishes. Sow every 2 weeks for continual harvest. Dutch Corn Salad, commonly known as lamb’s lettuce, dates from the Stone Age lake dwellings in Switzerland. In the 17th century England & France, corn salad was highly valued since it could thrive in the cold when other greens would freeze. Known in France as Mache. This tender, nutty spring salad green first became popular in America in the 1970s when a grower in California began producing it. It became quite popular in salad mixes & can also be cooked like spinach or used as an herb for flavoring. It has more than 3 times the Vitamin C than lettuce as well as Omega-3 fatty acid. Excellent choice for home gardens.
