Botanical Name: Lactuca sativa

Days to Maturity: 21–45 days

Family: Asteraceae

Native: Unknown; lettuce has been in cultivation for a long time.

Hardiness: Frost-tolerant annuals

Plant Dimensions: Leaves are harvested at 4"–6" tall for mesclun.

Variety Information: ALL ARE LEAF LETTUCES: 'TANGO': Deep green, serrated leaves, mildly tangy. 'ROYAL OAK LEAF': Medium green, deeply lobed, oak leaf shaped leaves, mild flavor, slower to bolt. 'RED SALAD BOWL': Pretty, deeply lobed green and bronze/red leaves. 'BLACK SEEDED SIMPSON': Crinkled, light green, crisp leaves with frilly edges. 'GRAND RAPIDS TBR': Medium green, curled leaves with frilled edges. 'RED SAILS': Dark red, crinkled leaves with frilly edges, slower to bolt, an All-America Selections winner.

Attributes: Good for Containers

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 40°F, ideally 60°–70°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 2 weeks before your average first fall frost date. Mild Climates: Sow in fall and winter for cool season harvests.

Seed Spacing: Broadcast about ½" apart

Thinning: Not required for baby greens

Harvesting: Harvest leaves with scissors 2" above the soil surface. Mesclun will regrow and provide 2–3 harvests, although the first harvest is usually the best. If you wish to harvest mature heads, cut off at 2" above ground level as soon as possible after head forms; new leaves will grow form the center. The earlier the harvest, the more tender the crop.

Easy to grow and plentiful. I have lost count of how many times I have harvested and it continues to produce. I have to say it is delicious and by far the best blend I have ever grown.

We've planted Farmer's Market Blend for about 4 years now. It's always great! I could live without arugula in the blend, and I'd like to see more red leaf. store greens just don't cut it once you've tried Farmer's Market Blend!
