09 Mar 19 Jes (New Zealand - temperate climate)
In the comments about corn salad (valerianella locusta) it was recommended "Not suitable for growing in warm areas." We came across it in southern italy and sicily where it was a staple in supermakets in Autumn (we visited Oct-Nov). Sicily is pretty warm! We are in Northland and will try some as an alternative winter salad.
