Description

An heirloom lettuce that dates to the 1850's. This unusual miniature butterhead lettuce produces small cabbage-like green heads, about the size of a baseball, which are ideal for individual salads. Dark green somewhat fleshy outer leaves wrap around a creamy yellow mild-flavored interior. Quick-maturing making it a great choice for children to grow.

 

Tom Thumb is an excellent summer lettuce as it tolerates high temperatures at maturity and resists bolting better than larger varieties. An outstanding choice for home gardeners and specialty market growers. Very sweet, juicy and tasty, a winner for classy markets.

 

We've seen these used at dinner parties where literally the entire head is put on a plate and dressed. It was a wonderful effect and perfect for those outdoor garden parties where you want something light and refreshing.

 

Can be planted close together in small space. Also grows well in containers on your patio or use it as a petite planting border. Sow little and often to extend the cropping period. Tom Thumb can also be used as baby leaves. 60 days.

 

Seeds/Packet: (min. 150-200 Seeds)
