Looseleaf Lettuce

A far cry from its wild, weedy ancestors, Lettuce now appears in all shapes, textures, flavors and sizes, bringing healthy crunch to modern kitchens. The varieties we offer are beautiful, reliable and usually not available in stores. To enjoy its ephemeral sweetness and texture, make sure Lettuce grows quickly: water it frequently and fertilize weekly with fish emulsion or manure tea. Direct-seed from the spring through the late summer. For baby greens, sow thickly and harvest with scissors or raise transplants, plugging seedlings into empty spaces in your garden as they become available.

Average seed life: 3 years.

45-70 days. No joke, this unique Frank Morton hybrid is as over-the-top ornate as it is flavorful and lofty in chef-worthy summer salad creations. Densely ruffled, curled and frilled blue-green leaves are artfully adorned with red speckles for premier exhibition in solo appearances, or with its colorful girlfriends, Lolla Rossa and Lolla Bionda. Growing uniform-sized leaves, it’s a snap to harvest whole plants, or individual leaves in cut and come again daily harvests. (OP.)

Lettuce prefers cool weather. To raise transplants, start seeds 5 to 8 weeks before setting out. Transplant out as soon as the soil can be worked. Sow thinly in flats or pots using sterilized starter mix, cover lightly and water. Provide light, moderate warmth and good ventilation. Avoid crowding: thin to 2" apart. Amend Lettuce beds with compost, organic fertilizer and/or well-rotted manure. Gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor temperatures and moderate sunlight, water well at transplanting time, shade seedlings from scorching sun and protect from heavy frosts. Keep soil moist with regular watering and feed with a liquid fertilizer as needed. For “baby” greens, broadcast seed, harvesting leaves when 3" to 4" high with scissors. Make successive sowings every 2 weeks for continuous harvest.
