RADICHETTA LETTUCE (Catalogna) (52 days heirloom)

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.
