We love this HEIRLOOM variety! It held very well in the heat. The unique upright shape also garnered lots of attention. The wonderfully tasty baby leaf is perfect for salads. Dark green triangular leaves have thin midribs, a lovely texture, a nutty flavour, and cover a crunchy inner heart. Amish Deer Tongue dates back to 1840. Try planting some Amish Deer Tongue lettuce seeds in a patio container. Grow it in cold frames throughout the winter, and enjoy its tasty leaves in salads and sandwiches throughout the cold weather.
Matures in 31 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)We regret that no more of this product will be available for 2021. We hope to offer it again next season.
Lettuce can be harvested from the garden from late spring to the late fall, and sometimes (given a bit of protection) all winter. The high protein chlorophyll in the dark-green leaves is highly nutritious. Salads are not complete without these leafy greens. Read more below on how to grow lettuce from seed.
