(1000 seeds)

$3.95

Frillier, prettier and tastes as good as it looks

We’re ready to bet you’ll never have grown a frillier green lettuce than this one! It isn’t even anything new. Italians have been enjoying this “eat with your eyes” beauty for many years, and it tastes just as good as it looks. When specialty food stores can get hold of this lettuce, you can be sure of paying a high price. But it’s just as easy to grow as any other lettuce, and your fresh-picked salad greens are way nicer than anything you could get in shops.

How to Sow

Because the small seeds have to be sown quite shallowly, it will be easier to keep seeds moist during germination if sown in trays. Alternatively, sow a few seeds in planting stations at the correct spacing and thin after germination. Sprinkle a little loose soil over the seeds till they are no longer visible and keep moist.

How to Harvest

Start using the leaves as soon as they are big enough to pick, or allow it to form small loose heads. If you are able to leave some stem behind when harvesting, they may resprout.
