This medium green triangular leaved lettuce makes a great baby green. The leaves have a slightly nutty flavour with a crunchy heart. The heads have a loose upright form and area slow to bolt.
How to Grow
Lettuce is a sun-loving cool weather crop that grows best in organic, well-drained soil. Sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring, then every two weeks thereafter to ensure a continuous supply. Sow about 1/8" deep in rows 18" apart then thin to 10-12" apart in the row. An even supply of moisture during the entire growth period is imperative for success. Harvest head lettuce by cutting the head off at the base just below the lower leaves. Once lettuce bolts (starts to produce a rapidly growing flower stem) leaves become bitter.
