Mesclun

Printer-friendly version

Mesclun mix and spring mix are interchangeable terms used to describe assorted mixed baby greens harvested at the seedling stage (3-4 weeks). Blends usually include 5-7 types of greens with a range of leaf sizes, colors, shapes and textures. Although leaf lettuces are often the primary component, most mixes also include non-lettuce greens (brassicas, herbs, and others) to add diversity in flavor and appearance. Mixes can be mild- or spicy-flavored, and can be harvested young for use in salads or older as “braising” mixes for stir-fries.
