Lettuce, Gentilina (Organic)
$3.50 – $12.50
Lactuca sativa. Green Leaf. 30 days baby; 50 full.
Bright green, open-headed loose leaf, great for whole heads or for baby leaf cutting. The frilly, sweet flavored heads will get big in a hurry and can be cut at any size. We were looking for a great looseleaf that had good flavor, wasn’t patented and met the conditions for us to grow on our farm. Gentilina fills the bill quite well and it also surprised us with hot weather tolerance. A popular variety used for salad mix in lettuce in Italy, which is also where it originates.
Seed produced by Wild Garden Seed in Philomath, Oregon.
