Days to Maturity: 50
Grow the sweetest, most tender butterhead (Boston) lettuce you’ve ever tasted in just 50 days with this petite gourmet treat.
The perfect variety for window box gardens, limited spaces, and those hard-to-fill corners in the vegetable garden.
Little Gem bears dark green heads just 5 inches across and packed with tender-fresh sweetness. Just wash these attractive little heads and serve them whole as the center of a composed salad, or use them as supersweet, soft wrappers for appetizers and finger food.
Children love them, too, for their non-astringent flavor and midget size.
Lettuce thrives in cold weather and can be sown directly into the garden, starting in early spring. For an even earlier harvest, sow indoors; the seedlings don’t mind transplanting. If a fall crop is desired, begin in late summer. Grow in single rows, plants spaced 6 inches apart, or in containers.
