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.
