Lactuca sativa

A traditional, small lettuce with crisp sweet and solid hearts. Ideal for small spaces or pots. Row 15m (50'). Sow March-August. Summer butterhead variety. Maturing time approximately 10-14 weeks from sowing. Develops large well-folded heads and succulent creamy-yellow hearts.

Rob says: "Lettuce Tom Thumb - Small, fast and tasty. These lettuces are great to sow in-between crops, or for smaller households as they produce compact plants, ideal for 1-2 people without waste. I grow them in-between my brassica seedlings in spring.”
