LETTUCE – MESCLUN MIX

Lactuca sativa

A mixture of young salad greens consisting of lettuces, spinach, rocket, and endive which can be grown together & the young leaves harvested repeatedly. A nice combination of tastes & flavor that appeals to any palate. Mesclun mixes are sun-loving cooler weather crops that grow best in good, well-drained soil. An even supply of moisture during the entire growth period is imperative for success. Harvest by either pulling the entire plant or by cutting leaves from the main stem at least 2.5 cm above the base, this will allow the plant to sprout new leaves. Grow your own nutritious microgreens.

Sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring, then every 2 weeks thereafter to ensure a continuous supply. Once plants start to bolt (produce rapidly growing flower stems), leaves become bitter.
