Lettuce Seeds - Crisp Mint Romaine

Lactuca sativa

This lettuce is one of the prettiest romaine style ones you can get. It forms compact, stately plants which are great for any salad. ‘Crisp Mint’, so called because of the colour of its leaves, can be cut even in hot weather and won’t wilt or droop before you get it home. You can pull off the outer leaves to use, while letting the plant heart up for use later in the season. You can also cut the main plant an inch above the ground and it will start to grow again, providing baby leaves a few weeks later. Use this variety for a great Caesar salad.

Crops 10–14 weeks from sowing. Sow thinly outdoors from late March until July (earlier crops can be obtained by sowing indoors from February onwards and planting out) at fortnightly intervals to ensure a regular supply. Sow in rows 30cm (12”) apart and 1.25cm (½”) deep and thin the plants to 23–30cm (9–12”) apart. For early cropping from overwintered lettuce sow seed outdoors late August-early September. For growing in a greenhouse during winter choose Valdor or Vailan. Row length per pack: 15m (50’) unless otherwise stated.
