Salad Burnett and Cilantro

by Vicky Deutsch
(Castroville TX, USA)

The most important factor when choosing a type of green vegetable to grow is to know what can survive in your area (soil, climate, etc.). I live in South Central Texas and most salad greens I like cannot survive in our heat and this summer, we have had a record heat wave of over 100 degrees for over a month. I grew cilantro (a green used in Mexican and even some Oriental dishes) one summer and was alarmed to note that I produced enough for my entire town. I have also had a green in my herb garden that has survived for several years now called Salad Burnett. I use it to flavor pasta dishes - it has a fresh cucumbery flavor and dark green foliage so it must be nutritious.
