Lettuce Lentissima A Montare

In stock

£0.75 / pack(s)

Lentissima A Montare has the classic tall compact heads true to its Batavian type.  It is slow to grow and slow to bolt too.  Happy growing in full sun and cropping from June to October. Lovely leaves: even the paler crunchy ribs are very good - perfect in a Caesar Salad or used for as ‘sticks’ for dips.     Price for 75 seeds


SOW: a little seed 15mm deep every 2-3 weeks from mid-March through to July. You can start them in modules and transplant so that there is no need to thin.


GROW: plant out when large enough to do so - for full hearts set out at about 25-35cm apart. Slow growing, you are really looking at about 12 weeks before they are ready to cut


EAT: once cut these can wait a little in the fridge and stay crisp.  You can trim out the ribs and use separately to the main leaves or dimply chop together for a crunchier salad.
