Description

Lettuce - Little Gem - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual Heirloom. This romaine lettuce grows 6" high with a thick, sweet heart. It's perfect for individual salads and sandwiches. This popular variety is easy to grow and holds well for a prolonged harvest.

Did You Know? Lettuce is a good source of vitamin A and C.

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 pick romaine lettuce as soon as it is big enough to use. Or you can pick the outer leaves and allow the inner leaves to continue growing. You can also use the plants pulled while thinning.
