for four months I ate this marvelous salad green every day. Why Americans are not growing and marketing it is beyond me. Try it you'll love it and be healthier than before.

I have been growing Mache for years. The seeds from Botanical Interests produce the largest leaves and tastiest salad available. I don't know why this salad isn't more widely available and anyone who doesn't grow it is definitely missing out
