Tango Leaf Lettuce

In Stock

50 days — The leaves of 'Tango' are extremely frilly and almost look like endive. The plants are attractive, uniform, and dark green in color. Leaves are tangy tender but hold up well to salad dressings. You can harvest and use young leaves in a "cut and come again" fashion or wait until they mature into tight, compact rosettes. Best if grown as a cool season crop as like many lettuce varieties, it can become bitter in hot weather. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.

I grew this lettuce in a planter all last summer and it was beautiful. Lovely taste. Picked as it grew, which prevented bolting. I didn't feel like it became bitter in the summer sun, but I live coastal so our average sumer temperature doesn't exceed 80 degrees. Full sun left some "burn" on the tips, but I rectified this by moving to a portion of the patio with only half sun throughout the day. It made wonderful salads everyday for 2 months. Will certainly grow again in spring.
