Drunken Woman Loose Leaf Lettuce Seeds (Organic)

Drunken Woman Loose Leaf Lettuce Seeds (Organic)

Colorful Nutty Delight

Drunken Woman Loose Leaf Lettuce, also known as "Mâche Frisée," presents a distinctive and visually appealing addition to gardens and salads. Originating in France, this cultivar has gained popularity for its unique appearance and mild, delightful flavor.

Contrary to its intriguing name, Drunken Woman Lettuce doesn’t have distinct subspecies but stands out as a standalone variety. Its aesthetic charm lies in its loose, frilly leaves that boast a vibrant spectrum of colors, ranging from green to deep red, resembling the tousled hair of a carefree figure, hence the name.

The taste of this lettuce is characterized by a mild, slightly nutty flavor, providing a delicate crunch and a refreshing taste that pairs well with various salad combinations.

When planting from seed, Drunken Woman Lettuce requires specific growing conditions for optimal growth. It thrives in well-draining, nutrient-rich soil with consistent moisture levels. Sow seeds thinly in shallow furrows, lightly covering them with soil. Adequate sunlight is crucial for robust growth, but in hotter climates, partial shade can prevent the leaves from becoming bitter.

This cultivar's adaptability makes it suitable for both garden beds and containers, offering flexibility to gardeners with limited space. Typically, Drunken Woman Lettuce matures within 40-50 days after planting, providing a generous yield of visually striking leaves for culinary purposes.

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: 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.
