Capulin Pelleted Organic lettuce seeds produce a great tasting one-cut green leaf variety with high, dense leaf count, good weight, and thick texture. This full sized green “tango” type lettuce is well suited for hand or mechanical harvesting. Bred for cold season growing, This variety will flourish from fall, winter, or early spring plantings. The heat of summer tends to trigger bolting in this lettuce.
This lettuce is part of the Eazyleaf® series of lettuces bred for ease of harvest. Cut the head from the ground and make a single cut around the short stem, and the leaves fall perfectly away for an instant salad. This will speed up market production for salad mixes.
Pelleted seeds require steady moisture during germination. The seed bed must be kept consistently moist in order to take advantage of the high germination rate. If the clay coating around each seed is allowed to dry out, it can result in poor germination.
