Lettuce “Oops” mixed seed

$2.50

55-60 Days. Blame the heat dome that cooked my brains and not taking precautions in using different collection pans when harvesting seed.  Essentially you are getting two great heirloom lettuce (one romaine and one looseleaf) in one packet.  A great saving.

Description

Yeah, we did an oops.  During collection the “Speckled Trout” and “Drunken Woman” lettuce seed was mixed up.  Both are beautiful varieties with great flavour, but totally different form types: Speckled Trout is a sweet romaine whereas Drunken Woman is a large extremely tender loose leaf.  Lesson learned in using different collection baskets so one can tell the difference when they have their head down in the patch.   What ratio of each is in the mix is a mystery as well.  Enjoy!

  • Seed Count: 100-150
  • Collection Date: Sept 2021

How to germinate and grow lettuce seeds:

Thinly sow & barely cover; tamp firm & mist. Success greater with clear cover. Gentle bottom heat promotes germination. Days to germ: 5-10.  Grow at 10C in fertile soil. Use liquid kelp for the best greens. Best sites: full sun, cool moisture retentive fertile soil. Stays green in shade.
