Lettuce, Stoke (Organic)

Lactuca sativa. Mini Green Romaine. 50 days.

Crunchy dark-green stars in the garden. Stoke loves cool weather and produces sweet leaves perfect for any salad or sandwich. A very hardy variety that is capable of overwintering in the south of England with no protection (minimum temperatures to 10°F). Old-school mini-romaine, similar to Little Gem, that may be an ancestor of the small lettuce craze that is so popular these days.  A good choice for close plantings and for “cut-and-come-again” salad production. This variety is originally from Stoke, located near Rochester, in Kent, England. It was grown by the Cheeseman family for 150 years, though likely dates from before 1840. We originally sourced this variety from the Heritage Seed Library in England.

Seed produced by Persephone Farm in Lebanon, Oregon.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil year-round. Transplant into the garden 3-4 weeks after sprouting at 3″ spacing for leaf, 12″ for heads. Alternatively, direct sow March through September. In our area, lettuce can go through winter if protected. Succession sow for continual harvest.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds when flowers are downy like dandelions. Cut seed heads and place upside down in a bag to dry for a few days. Knock seed heads against side of bucket or tote, rub downy fluff off seeds. Winnow and screen to clean.
