description for "Lettuce: Lactuca sativa 'Heirloom Cutting Mix'"

This 'Heirloom Cutting Mix' custom seed mix from Renee's Garden is comprised of several heirloom varieties to create this blend of luscious antique lettuces. The pretty mix includes seeds for red flecked, lime-green 'Speckled Troutback,' sweet 'Blush Butter Cos,' juicy 'Red Ruffled Oak,' notched dark red 'Devil's Tongue' and crisp little upright 'Sucrine.' These beautiful lettuces create a tapestry in the garden and you'll be able to cut their fast growing, flavorful leaves often for colorful and delicious salad bowls all season. Begin harvesting by the "cut and come again" method when plants are 4 or 5 inches tall. Cut as much lettuce as you need, using scissors to shear off a patch of leaves about 1 to 2 inches above the soil level. Water well and fertilize lightly, and plants will regrow for another cutting. Dress with virgin olive oil and a mild fruit or balsamic vinegar to enjoy the sweet flavor and juicy texture of these delicate young leaves at their best. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
