Tom Thumb Lettuce
Certified Organic Seed
Cute, compact green lettuces are the perfect size for one!
These small lettuces grow quickly; full-size heads (which top out around the size of a large apple) are ready to eat in just over six weeks. Tom Thumb's leaves are bright green, with a buttery and smooth texture. Piled whole with coarsely chopped vegetables, Tom Thumb makes a dramatic salad.
