Lettuce Seeds - Vailan - Winter Gem

Lactuca sativa

A version of the enormously popular 'Little Gem' lettuce that can be grown throughout the winter with only frost protection, so you can enjoy a steady harvest of tasty lettuce! Mildew and Mosaic Virus resistant.

Tom says: Quick and easy lettuces are many peoples first veggie crop. Try mixing red and green lettuce leaves to add a note of bitterness to salads, or try slicing up little gem lettuces and sautéing with peas and garlic for an alternative homegrown lunch.
