Lettuce Mesclun 'Chef's Medley' Seed Pack

Availability: In stock (7)

This blend will give you loads of flavor and color, with four varieties of lettuce - Summer Bibb, Oakleaf, Black Seeded Simpson, and Lolla Rosa - plus some arugula, tatsoi, and mizuna, a member of the mustard family, for spice. These are all frost tolerant varieties and can be sown directly into your containers or garden bed when soil temps are at least 40 degrees, but preferably 60 - 70 degrees. They prefer a bit of shade in the afternoon, so save the all-day sun spots for your hot-weather crops.
