Minutina, like miner's lettuce, corn salad, and mizuna, stands all winter, even in Maine, in an unheated greenhouse (see Four-Season Harvest in our book section).
Small plant makes a rosette of slender leaves, cut and forked like a stag's horns. Easy to grow, takes very little space, regrows after cutting.
