Lettuce - Crisp Mint
Exclusively launched by T&M back in 1979 as the most crisp and sweet hearted Cos which stood in perfect quality without bolting through the summer. It features an upright habit with noticeable savoyed/bubbled dark green outer leaves, and it has a good sweetness. Use as a sugar cos when young, or as a fully hearted mature lettuce. Also suited as a “cut and come again” salad.
It is ideal for spring and summer sowings. Sow seed thinly at regular intervals 1cm deep, in drills 30-38cm apart. Thin seedlings to 3cm apart for full-hearted lettuce or to 15cm for baby leaf or 'cut and come again' use. Water well during dry periods.
