Additional Information

CULTURE: Mache, also known as "corn salad" or "lamb's lettuce," grows well in cool or mild weather conditions. Mache can be planted anytime soil temperatures range from 41-68°F (5-20°C). Do not sow if soil temperatures have exceeded 68°F (20°C). At temperatures greater than 70°F (21°C) the seed will go dormant. In northern latitudes mache can be grown year-round utilizing open field, cold greenhouse, and high tunnel systems. In southern areas mache is adapted for open field winter production. Sow 1" apart in rows 4-18" apart. Mache germinates slowly in 10-14 days.
HARVEST: Cut young rosettes (entire plants) at the root attachment when 2-3" tall. Mache can be used alone, or as a component of a salad mix.
