Little Gem Lettuce Seeds

(P) Pkt of 600 seeds
Item #05137-PK-P1


Supersweet flavor

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.

Pkt is 32 oz. (approx. 600 seeds); (sowing a 30-foot row)

Idk what other reviewers are talking about. This variety has preformed very good in my yard. This type tastes great, very sweet type lettuce. I suggest getting the variety from a different supplier if parkseeds wasnt preforming well. Because even when its hot and the lettuce should taste gross this one is still sweet . My go to and will have a place in my garden every year. Fyi leaves make perfect hamberger/sandwich lettuce.

I've planted this now for 3 or 4 years and it's always been wonderful. Pick the entire head and you have a wonderful salad for one person. It's sweet and crunchy lettuce, no bitterness. I'm not much of a salad fan, but I can eat this every day.
