These small lettuces grow quickly; full-size heads (which top out around the size of a large apple) are ready to eat in just over six weeks. Tom Thumb's leaves are bright green, with a buttery and smooth texture. Piled whole with coarsely chopped vegetables, Tom Thumb makes a dramatic salad.

How to Grow

For steady supply, direct sow outdoors when soil becomes workable in spring until 6 weeks before first fall frost, at 2-week intervals. Sow seeds 12 per foot, then thin to 6" apart. Lettuce requires full sun to partial shade and prefers steady moisture. Tolerates moderate soil fertility.
