60 days — Corn Salad (or Cornsalad), also known as 'French Cornsalad', 'Lamb's Lettuce', 'Field Salad', or 'Mâche',  is a hardy annual that grows well to zone five. In warm weather it bolts to seed. If your climate is mild, it can be grown as a winter green. Corn Salad grows wild in parts of Europe, northern Africa and western Asia and is a common weed on both cultivated land and waste spaces.

Like other formerly foraged greens, corn salad has many nutrients, including three times as much Vitamin C as lettuce, beta-carotene, B6, B9, Vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids. This is an old garden green. Because it has a delicate, mild flavor, Corn Salad contrasts nicely in mesclun or salad mixes with stronger flavored greens like arugula and mustard greens. It can also be cooked like, or used in recipes, as a substitute for spinach. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 700 seeds.
