The lettuce with the identity problem
Days to Maturity: 15 from direct sow
Micro Mini Greens are the most exciting new development in vegetables in quite a while, and we are pleased to make this premium mix of red and green lettuce varieties available while quantities last. Sow them indoors or in containers for super-quick crops of nutrition-packed, tender, delicious greens so tiny you can sprinkle them on top of salads and sandwiches for a big nutrient punch.
It’s easier to say what Micro Mini Greens are NOT than to define what they are. They aren’t sprouts—these are leaves as well as stems, and this collection contains the full range of colors, textures, and flavors. Nor are they baby greens—they will not “grow up” to be any bigger than you see them at 15 days. They are simply a complete vegetable in miniature form, and they pack an astonishing 6 times the nutrient value of full-sized lettuce leaves.
In this collection you will have smooth and curly varieties in all shades of green and red. The flavor is, again, not like a sprout but even more tender and vibrant than baby lettuce. We have tried them on everything from cracker spreads to cold soups to cooked vegetables of all kind—they are terrific added at the last moment, the way you might sprinkle cheese or herbs as a finishing touch. Yet they are not a garnish—too flavorful for that.
Start these Micro Minis as you would any lettuce seeds, sowing in rows in a container indoors or out, or beneath an Easy Tunnel or other protection outdoors. You probably won’t have to thin them at all—it’s just a question of how densely you want them to grow. They can be grown year-round indoors, and are a cool-season crop outside, best in spring and fall in all climates as well as winter farther South and West.
Quick, easy, and delicious—we can’t say enough good things about Micro Mini lettuces. You will adore this collection, and we suggest that you order early and in multiple packets if you want year-long crops. This item is bound to sell out quickly.
