Lettuce, Flashy Butter Gem (Organic)
$3.50 – $6.50
Lactuca sativa. Speckled Romaine. 30 days baby; 50 full.
What we expected was a perfect, sweet Little Gem type lettuce with cool red speckles and more buttery texture. We got all of that and more! We waited a week after Little Gem size but they didn’t bolt, just got bigger and more colorful. Versatile since it can be harvested as a mini or full size head with no sacrifice on flavor or texture. A gourmet quality lettuce for salad mix and heads to wow friends and/or market customers. Excellent planted spring, summer and fall. Not the hardiest in our 2010 winter trial but it lasted fairly well into the cold rainy season. Another excellent Frank Morton original, bred right here in Oregon.
