Planting is from late summer until late autumn. We sow in fortnightly intervals directly in their final place. We do furrows spaced 15 cm apart, we sow the seeds scattered by the furrows, 1 cm deep and then, we cover lightly with soil. They grow in any climate but they prefer damp and cool soils, therefore we should water enough, especially the young plants during dry periods.

They will be ready to harvest when they have 4 true leaves. We must take the outer leaves when we need them with a knife, cutting a little above the base of the plant. In this way, it will continue producing new leaves. We have to wash the leaves thoroughly before consumption.

Corn Salad are delicious with a hail of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon or in mushroom salad and red onion. The French use it traditionally with cooked beets and walnuts. They are a good substitute for lettuce or spinach. We can keep them in a plastic bag or "film" a maximum of two weeks, but we shouldn't wash them until just before serving or cooking.

They have a lot of nutrients, beta-carotene, vitamins A, B6 and E, potassium, phosphorus, folic acid, and omega-3, they have three times more vitamin C than lettuce and a more iron than spinach. Corn Salad are digestive. They strengthen bones, hair, teeth and nails. They are very good for the eyes. They have some relaxing power because they come from the same family as valerian.

Its peculiar name has its origin from the ancient monasteries where clerics consumed them usually.
