     Organic Michelle Lettuce Seeds (47 days)

 

 

     .5 g about 300 seeds

     Michelle lettuce is a red Batavian type, but produces mainly green leaves in the summer. 

In early spring or fall, Michelle will have wonderful red tinges on the leaves. 

Scrumptious lettuce that is very crunchy with no bitterness. 

Michelle lettuce perfoms well in the heat, unlike many lettuces, very rarely becoming tipburned. 

In our 2012 lettuce trials, Michelle proved to be the most bolt-resistant, hands down. This speckled beauty can help extend your fresh greens season into and beyond the heat of the season.

Planting Tips for Organic Heirloom Lettuce Seeds:

Sow directly into very fertile, loose soil.  Thin down to final spacing once plants are established.  For best results, plant in spring or fall.  Harvest outside leaves for a continual harvest.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heat Tolerance:  If you are growing lettuce in the heat, plant them where they will get afternoon shade.  Lettuce is a spring and fall crop in really hot areas.

Harvest Tips: For a continual harvest, sow a new crop every 2-3 weeks if cutting full heads, otherwise harvesting outside leaves will encourage a longer harvest from individual plants.
