LETTUCE – Tom Thumb

(1000 seeds)

$3.95

(2 customer reviews)

Cute mini-lettuces prized by top chefs.

This cute mini lettuce produces loose heads just 7-10cm wide. As you can imagine, it’s as sweet and tender as it looks. If you’re looking for something really novel, or want to whip up a salad for one, you can be sure of a tasty treat without waste. Excellent heat tolerance makes it a good summer lettuce. An heirloom variety, this lettuce is prized by the luxury market and will thrive in pots.

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.
