L22a - Lambs lettuce / Mache or corn salad. Special Franchi selection from our professional range. This variety resists to low temperatures. Open full heart rosettes of soft melt-in-the-mouth leaves.
Dont waste your money on pricey imported lambs lettuce as its easy to grow and quite quick from ground to plate. It can be sown from March to April and then again from July to the end of October, which is its main season. Many people are amazed that you can sow it so late in the year, but this is its time, so let nature take its course and youll be eating this wonderful leaf in the autumn and winter, especially if you stagger the sowing. It wont grow back after youve 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 doesnt need full sun or feeding and pests pretty much leave it alone.
