RADICHETTA LETTUCE (Catalogna) (52 days heirloom)

SKU:

Italian Heirloom
The elongated, lobed leaves of this loose leaf lettuce come equipped with thick, crunchy, flavorful ribs. Flavor and texture are almost halfway between a lettuce and chicory so it can be eaten fresh or cooked. Not at all bitter, it grows fast, is cold tolerant, and slow to bolt. 300 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 1/4” deep in cells with soil temps 55-70 degrees. Transplant out 8-12” apart.

Outdoors- Sow 1/4” “deep, 1” apart. Thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want from baby to full heads. Keep moist during germination.

Harvest- cut whole head at base or individual leaves before lettuce starts to bolts and becomes bitter in the heat and long days summer.

Tips- Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water for optimum growth. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix for a season long supply of lettuce.
