Corn Salad or Mache-Verte D'Etampes

1 Review | Write a Review
This variety was popular in 1880’s France. It produces flavorful, deep green leaves, and the small plants are fairly cold-hardy. In 1885 Vilmorin said, “They bear cold weather remarkably well, and they have the advantage of losing their freshness less than those of any other kind while they are being brought to market.”

What are the pros? Overwintered well

What are the cons? Very small


No complaints about the plant itself, good flavor, withstood our weird winters with no protection. However, getting it to germinate was a challenge. Kentucky's fall is often dry and hot up until frost, so by the time the soil cooled enough for the mache to be comfortable, it had little time to grow. I did indoor germination tests and got nearly 100%, so the seed is good. If you have longer, cooler autumns, it will probably do well.
