Lettuce 'Little Jem'


Heirloom. 50 days. (Bibb type). A small lettuce often described as a combination of Butter and Romaine. Crisp like Romaine and sweet like Butter, but the texture and the flavor are still its own. No more then eight in. tall and one of the earliest to mature. A nutty flavor, walnut in particular and a sweetness that is more reserved. Works well in mixed salads and in sandwiches. A classic use for this is to cut in half lengthwise and serve each half, dressed as a salad, also separated leaves can be used for dipping, the ruffled texture will pick up any dip or dressing.
