Tom Thumb

70 days — Very compact butterhead-type plants with small, tennis ball sized heads. The leaves of 'Tom Thumb' are medium green, slightly crumpled with creamy yellow centers.

Dating back to the 1830s, it is one of the oldest American varieties still available. Does well in containers indoors and out.  "The Vegetable Garden," (1885) by M.M.Vilmorin-Andrieux calls it "Laitue Gotte Lente à Monter." Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.

Love it!
Compact heads are so easy to grow, and the crisp sweet flavor is hard to beat. Even my lettuce-hating child loves it...and THAT'S saying something! :)
