Developed by brilliant lettuce breeder Frank Morton, of Wild Garden Seed.
A small, dark green gem lettuce, with red speckles. Striking leaves add a nice colour contrast in salads.
Mini heads will form as plants reach maturity. Grows with an open habit when immature, allowing you to harvest individual leaves. Harvest entire heads by cutting at the base, opening room for a succession crop.
Gem lettuce is a cross between romaine and butterhead, making it buttery and crispy with a hint of sweet flavour.
Lettuce is hardy in cold temperatures, and may be sown directly in your spring garden, a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks before the final frost date. Feel free to start seeds indoors at least 6 weeks before the final frost date and transplant to the garden 3 to 4 weeks later.
Space seedlings at least 6-inches apart, in all directions. Sow seeds every 2 to 3 weeks for a continuous crop. Check out my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your area, and to learn the last safe sowing date to achieve a succession crop.
For more information on growing lettuce, please see my post "A Complete Guide to Growing Lettuce".

Shipping is calculated at the time of order and is based on the number of seed packets per order. All packages are shipped through Canada Post, and pricing for packages containing seeds are the same for addresses across Canada.
Larger items are calculated by weight and destination and will vary by province.
US seed orders are made at the buyer’s own risk, and we cannot guarantee delivery. We will receive and ship orders but cannot account for the actions of foreign customs, which is the reason for this non-guarantee. Unfortunately, I do not offer phytosanitary certificates, so if the seeds are confiscated or destroyed at the border, your order will not be refunded or reissued.
Non-seed orders are calculated by weight and destination and vary by state.
We cannot ship orders outside of North America.
