Also known as cornsalad. This North Holland type is from a prominent Dutch grower so it is definitely the real deal. Compared to the French mache (W141) this one is much larger and more vigorous, also a bit later, ideal for munching with an unusual, memorable flavor.
Germination: 10-14 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 45-65ºF. Soil temperatures above 68ºF inhibits germination.
Seed Sowing Depth: 1/8 inch deep
Sowing Outdoors: Spring when soil temperature reaches 45ºF. Sow again in late summer, fall, and early winter (greenhouse or using cold frames) when soil temperature falls below 68ºF. Sow 1” apart, thin to 4-6”. Keep soil moist during germination.
How much does a packet plant: 10-15 foot single row
Harvest: Cut whole heads when they are 2-3" tall
Tips: Plant in fertile, well drained soil. Amend with compost before planting if needed. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. If you live in zones 6 and above you can grow mache through the winter.

Good germination, too hot in my Whittier Ca. garden for Corn Lettuce. The Wasabi Arugula bolted within a couple weeks after germination. I will try again in the Fall/Winter!
In the past, I've bought Mache.
