In spite of its name, this dwarf 18th century American heirloom lettuce, one of Thomas Jefferson’s favourites, is distinctive for its delicate, pale-green leaves, which form a medium-sized Boston-type, loose head. Maturing at a very small size, it is perfect for pots and balconies.
Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and fall. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
