Little Gem, organic seeds
Lactuca sativa var. longifolia
"Sugar Cos" is in our opinion one of the best-tasting lettuces. The head is small, about 15 cm high but still relatively thick. The outer leaves are a strong light-green colour, slightly crumpled and surround a very crispy, yellow interior. Little Gem (french. Sucrine) is fast and can be set closer together. It is also good for early and late sowing in greenhouses and hotbeds. L. G. was introduced as early as 1903. A portion contains about 300 seeds.
