This gourmet salad green is often found in mescluns where it adds a sharper flavor. Usually grown as a salad green, it may also be cooked and served with a sauce or grated cheese. Leaves are finely cut, rich green blanching to a creamy white near the center.

SOWING…Plant seed outdoors as soon as the ground can be worked; as seedlings are frost tolerant. Plant in rows 18 inches apart spacing seed 1 inch apart in the row. Cover seed with ¼ inch fine soil, well pressed down. Keep soil moist until seeds start to grow. For continuous supply, repeat plantings every week through mid-summer.

THINNING…When plants are 2-3 inches tall, thin or transplant 12 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 7 to 14 days depending on soil and weather conditions.

REMARKS…To blanch center leaves, tie outer leaves together 2-3 weeks before harvest. Tastiest crops are timed for harvest during cool fall weather. Plant with lettuce and other greens to make your own mesclun mix.
