Franchi - Organic Vegetable - BIOB140/3 - Corn Salad - D'Olanda - Seeds
A Dutch variety with larger leaves than the Cambrai. The larger, fatter leaf gives it a meatier bite, but the colour is a less attractive lighter green than the Cambrai.It can be sown from March to April and then again from July to the end of October, which is its main season. It wont grow back after you've picked it, so pull the whole bunch of leaves up, cut the small root off, wash, dress and serve. I always plant a lot of this wonderful leaf, as I love making salad just with lambs lettuce. Sow 1 cm deep, water occasionally, especially at first, and nature will do the rest. It doesn't need full sun or feeding and pests pretty much leave it alone.
