Little Gem romaine lettuce seeds produce small, personal size, mini romaine heads that will fit in the palm of your hand. Little Gem was popularized as a gourmet heirloom treat in England. These little gems grow to about 4″ in diameter and are best picked when they are 6″ tall. By then they will have developed their tasty and tender blanched hearts. Outer leaves are crisp and firm, semi-savoyed, and vivid green. Little Gem looks splendid planted in the garden. Plant short rows at regular weekly intervals from April to July for a harvest that doesn’t come all at once. Try Little Gem in containers or even window boxes.
