This heirloom butterhead is like miniature romaine lettuce and grows no more than 8" tall. Most harvest at 4-6 inches tall for the best balance of tenderness, sweetness, and yield. Because it is small, it is one of the earliest to mature, and we think it is one of the best tastings. 

In Europe, this well-known variety of lettuce is called 'Sucrine,' meaning sugar, because of its sweetness. Little Gem has received numerous awards and is highly recommended by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany. Plants can be spaced six by six inches for maximum yields. It is also heat tolerant and ready for your table in record time. 50 days.
