Description

Quick to finish and super tender

Days to Maturity: 45 from direct sow

Now you can grow baby Romaine that matures quickly yet has all the flavor and texture associated with full sized varieties. This seed packet contains equal parts Truchas and Breen, two superior varieties for space-saving, quick-crop delectability.

Mini Romaine Blend Lettuce Seeds Includes:

Truchas: is an upright, very disease-resistant Romaine with crimson leaves. Just 6 to 8 inches at maturity, it offers a deliciously fresh, tender bite that manages to stay crisp while also being succulent and mild. Exceptional resistance to downy mildew, tomato bushy stunt viruys, and lettuce mosaic virus.

Breen: is a slower-growing, medium red babyleaf with wide, succulent foliage that can be harvested leaf by leaf or whole-head. The perfect complement to Truchas, it stands up to downy mildew and offers rich color as well as complex flavor.

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 18 inches apart, or in containers.
