Valerianella locusta A European baby salad green, corn salad (also known as ,canÃ³nigos, mÃ¢che, nut lettuce, lamb's lettuce or Valerianella locusta) is a wonderful delicacy with a delicious refreshing taste. They can be mixed with other greens but is able to "stand alone" It is unlike any other salad green. The leaves of this rare salad green just yet melt in your mouth. They are tender yet surprisingly crunchy! The flavor is mild and delicate, sweet with a hint of raw nuts. These great greens are extremely easy to grow, which is perfect, because here in the U.S. they're very difficult to find unless you're lucky enough to have a really good produce market in your neighborhood, and even then they're usually very pricey. A great cool season veggie that can take more cold than just about any other green. It is hardy to zone 5 and can be harvested from under a blanket of snow! Likes cool growing seasons. Plant very early spring or late summer. Frost makes it taste even sweeter! It is one of those salad greens that is totally worth growing! You wont regret it! :) "Baron" corn salad is a quick maturing variety! The upright plant habit helps keep soil out and makes for quick and easy harvest. Oval-round dark green leaves can be grown in open field and under glass.
