Little Gem Lettuce
Little Gem is truly the jewel of lettuces. It is a small, crisp heirloom romaine (Cos) with a sweet flavor, easy to grow, keep soil moist. It is perfect for an individual salad, and ideal for patio containers and small gardens. It is a quick maturing crop (50 days), heat tolerant, and is great for inexperienced gardeners. The little crisp crinkly leaves create the perfect shape for stuffing with almost anything! It is my favorite lettuce for daily family salads and for optimum for creating a Caesar Salad!
