Little Gem

65 days — 'Little Gem' is an old, butterhead-type lettuce and not to be confused by the romaine-type variety by the similar name of 'Little Gem Cos'. It is relatively heat tolerant, with small, about five inches across, bright green heads, that have an excellent flavor and are sweet and crunchy.

Developed by Vilmorin-Andrieux Seed Company, it was released in 1880. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.

Little Gem lives up to its name!
I tried out this lettuce for the first time this year and I'm ordering more! The lettuce looks like green roses in the garden-very pretty! The flavor is wonderful. No salad dressing necessary; the lettuce is crispy and tasty!

Excellent choice
I grew this all season, from April until October. It was very tasty in every stage of growth. Kept my family and friends well fed. I even had one plant bolt (it was an amazing sight, it grew 6 inches almost overnight) I wanted to let it go so I could see lettuce flower, but it toppled over from its own weight. Even the bolted plant was delicous!
