35 days for baby leaves, 60 days for roots. [1840, French variety.] Famous for its mild, dark leaves - usually harvested young for salad mix before the roots have even matured. Flattened round roots, but the leaves are the real attraction - their reddish-purple color comes out most strongly in cool weather. (28 g)
