Crisp Mint Lettuce (60 Days)

1 review

The search for a lettuce that tolerates the hot months of summer could be over for you. We have always loved Jericho but this has proven to be a worthy rival. The ruffled mint colored leaves are crisp and sweet even in elevated temperatures. Young heads are rather open but tighten up as they mature, growing to a sturdy 10”. Harvest mini or full sized. Experiment by growing this as a cut and come again lettuce, (we discovered this is possible thanks to our resident groundhog).

PLANTING

Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1” apart, thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want, baby to full heads. Keep soil moist during germination. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a longer harvest period. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.

Starting Indoors:  3-4 weeks before planting outsideSow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70 degrees F soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row  

Harvest: Cut whole heads at base or snipe off individual leaves.  

Tips: Lettuce needs fertile soil for optimum growth. Work in compost or well rotted manure into your soil before planting. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

    My favorite, not bitter, grows strong.

    I grew 5 different lettuce varieties and the crisp mint romaine was my favorite. The germination rate was awesome. The flavor is great. I planted April 1, it was the first lettuce to sprout and we have been harvesting all through the month of May and continue to have a healthy harvest even though it is June in the desert and the temperatures are in the 90s. It has not had any bitterness to date, which is why I wanted to try it. I'm so pleased. We planted the heads close together and snip the leaves after they get 3-5 inches tall and the plant grows more leaves. Love this one.
