Little Gem has a pale, green heart and a crisp center and sweeter taste than common lettuce. Little Gem lettuce never develops a bitter flavor. Begin indoors 4-6 weeks before final spring frost or about 6-8 weeks before the first autumn frost. Sow 2-3 seeds 1/4” deep and 2-3” apart in organically composted, well drained soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Seeds germinate in 3-10 days, transplanting or thinning back to 1 plant every 9-12” as leafy heads establish. Thrives in moist soils supplemented with nitrogen-rich fertilizer and can be sown every two weeks for successive, season-long harvests.
