Long loved in Europe and just making its way to American salads, mache is as delectable as it is hardy. We are always thrilled to have this mild, aromatic and marvelously succulent green in February! Our friends at Turtle Tree Biodynamic Seed Initiative have found this to be the most hardy of all varieties they’ve trialed over the years, consistently overwintering uncovered outdoors for the last 17 years. We couldn’t agree more, she is so deliciously resilient! At Fruition, we sow mache in mid-September and savor the harvest all winter long and rejoice when the spring re-growth bounces back with ebullience; under hoops and floating row cover mache harvests are even more abundant.
