Little Gem Lettuce seed produces the cutest little butterhead lettuces with the qualities of romaine lettuce. Almost single-serve in size, these crunchy and buttery lettuces are great for small spaces. They do great in containers and can be succession planted for fresh lettuce all season long.

Recommended Planting Requirements: Lettuce is a cool-season plant and can be succession planted most months of the year in mild climates. For warmer regions, lettuce should be grown in the cooler months or in a protected culture to keep it cool. You can use shade cloth to extend the season and keep lettuce from wilting. Light soils with good drainage will give you the best harvest of lettuce. You can direct sow or transplant lettuce. When direct sowing lettuce, make sure you can keep the soil moist the whole time for even germination.

Growing Recommendation: Watering regularly is critical to good growth. In warmer climates watering more often may be needed. Some areas with hot spring and fall conditions should use shade cloth to protect lettuce and extend the season.

Harvesting & Storage: Like most lettuces, you can trim wanted leaves from the plant as needed or harvest the whole head. Marvel of Four Seasons lettuce is wonderful lettuce eaten both ways. On our farm, we harvest the heads when they are small, then cut them open to eat whole. They are so crispy and sweet!
