Description

Soft, buttery goodness. Bibb-like heads enclose loose, sweet, crisp-tender leaves. Outer leaves are an attractive deep spring green; inner leaves are nearly white. Plant in humus-y soil, and do not to let the plants dry out. Sow heavily seeded rows every 10-14 days for a constant supply of baby greens. To harvest, cut the head near the plant base or just pick individual leaves as you need them. Very heat-tolerant and slow to bolt. Stays mild after others get bitter.
