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. Mache germinates slowly in 10–14 days.
