Rich, deep green leaves surround a full heart with truly superior flavour. This large seeded corn salad grows upright in open field or under low tunnels during the whole cool season, from September to April. The succulent leaves are delicious in salads or just on their own. Corn Salad is an excellent, cold-hardy salad green that remains unfamiliar to many in North America. It represents a real money crop for winter market gardeners, and an easy way to grow greens in the home garden all winter long. Treat it just like any other salad green, in a mix or on its own, with the dressing of your choice. Consider planting some Valgros corn salad seeds in containers for easy patio picking.
