If ever a variety deserved its name it was Little Gem!
Grow your own for the best flavour and you can eat it minutes after picking. Compact, dark green leaves, with a very solid, crisp and crunchy heart. Extraordinarily sweet and just perfect for individual salads. Lettuces are easy to grow in the smallest of gardens or even in pots on a balcony or patio.
Indoors: March - April
Outdoors: April - July
