Devil's Tongue Lettuce Seeds (Organic)

Eye-catching Edible Leaves

Devil's Tongue Lettuce, originating from Europe, is recognized for its striking appearance and unique characteristics.

The plant showcases a distinctive appearance with elongated leaves that resemble the shape of a tongue, exhibiting vibrant shades of red and green. Its striking coloring and ruffled leaf edges add an ornamental appeal to gardens and salads alike.

Taste-wise, Devil's Tongue Lettuce offers a mild, slightly bitter flavor with a hint of sweetness, making it a versatile addition to culinary creations. The leaves are tender and crisp, providing a pleasing texture in salads or as a garnish.

When planting Devil's Tongue Lettuce from seed, it thrives in well-drained, nutrient-rich soil with ample sunlight. Sow the seeds directly into the ground or containers, maintaining consistent moisture for successful germination. Optimal germination temperature ranges between 60-70°F (15-21°C).

Regular watering and providing adequate spacing, around 6-8 inches apart, support healthy growth and leaf development. Additionally, planting in cooler weather or providing shade during hotter periods can prevent the lettuce from bolting prematurely.

Planting & Care

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: 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.
