Lettuce - Gourmet Mix - Lactuca sativa
Hardy Annual Heirloom. This gourmet lettuce mix includes Red Salad Bowl (leaf), Green Salad Bowl (leaf), Buttercrunch (head), Paris Island Cos (romaine), and Lolla Rossa (leaf).
Soil & Water: Lettuce likes full sun except in hot summer climates where it prefers some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness.
Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown from spring through fall.
Harvesting & Storage: You can begin harvesting outer leaves as soon as they are large enough and continue until a central stalk begins to form which signals the end of the harvest period. You can also harvest the entire plant when it's mature but still young and crisp.

I love this lettuce mix! Gorgeous colors, and crisp beautiful lettuce. They are growing just beautifully and people walking or driving by my house are complimenting my pretty raised beds that are all full of edibles. My kids love picking their own lettuce for salads, sandwiches and burgers.Review by Shala (on 7/14/13)
This is my favorite lettuce blend and I have tried several. It's the only one I'm ordering this year.Review by Cameron Lady (on 3/11/12)
I love this mix! It is beautiful in my garden and a fun variety of lettuce for my salad. It has a good mix of tastes and textures. The plants grow quickly and are easy to harvest one leaf at a time. My coworkers ask, "Where did you get that salad mix?" It's fun to reply, " I got it from my garden!"Review by Cinda T (on 8/20/11)
