Annual Culinary herb
Corn salad also known lambs lettuce, field salad or mache. Very slow growing. Leaves are used raw in salads and can be cropped all year from successional sowings and with some protection during winter in colder climates. Corn salad has 3 times the amount of vitamin C than lettuce, other nutrients include vitamin E, omega fatty acids and beta-carotene. Do not sow to early unless you are harvesting frequently as corn salad runs to seed in heat. Best sown July to end of November, protect from frost, try sowing in pots, give protection for late sowings. (For baby leaf it can be sown every 2 weeks from April). Harvest Lambs Lettuce when 3 to 4 leaves have formed.
