Little Gem Mini Romaine Lettuce
Little Gem is a very popular and absolutely delicious mini romaine lettuce that produces a very thick heart for a great crunchy texture. The plants are best harvested when they reach 4 to 6 inches tall. Due to their miniature size they can be spaced very tightly together in the row for dense plantings. Great for gardeners who are limited on space. Heat tolerant.
Will grow in a wide range of soil types but prefers a slightly acidic loamy soil with high fertility. pH 6.2 to 6.5
Can be transplanted in early spring or directly sown into the garden a couple weeks before the last frost. May be grown all summer in cooler summer regions. Plant heat tolerant varieties for summer production.
