60 days. An heirloom lettuce that dates to the 1850's. It makes small cabbage-like green heads, only 3-4" across. Very tasty, a winner for classy markets!

Review:

My first year growing lettuce and Tom Thumb did not disappoint. A rain storm washed my seeds into a cluster so I had a bit of crowding at first - I pulled a few out at the root and moved them to a new bed and they just kept on growing! I've harvested tons already! It's late July and we've had 100 degree days, it keeps on trucking! If you cut the heads off above the root, it will grow back a fresh new head. The flavor is mild and the leaves are tender. If store properly, the heads keep in the fridge for 1-2 weeks without spoiling. Makes a delightful cob salad! I've so enjoyed having this cute little plant in my gardens. It's been a treat to harvest and share with family.

What are the pros? Salad size

Review:

This is a fun lettuce. Just right for one salad. Others in my pea patch are pulling bolting lettuce but not me. I am picking it fairly fast and it is not bitter yet. I cut it high on the stalk and it comes off clean and easy to wash.

What are the pros? Hardy & A Fine Taste & Texture

What are the cons? Not a Thing!

Review:

This is truly an excellent lettuce. It is highly comparable to the 'Manoa' lettuce of Hawaii. The only difference is its size. The small heads of 'Tom Thumb' are well worth growing, as they are extra crisp and flavorful. It is among our favorites from Baker Creek. Highly recommended! I do hope to see Baker Creek carry 'Manoa' lettuce one day soon. Do try the 'Tom Thumb,' - it's very good.

Thriving despite the heat

What are the pros? color, heat-tolerance

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is a lovely little lettuce that is among the varieties I'm trying to grow from seed, having never grown lettuce from seed before. It has been thriving in a container, despite some excessively hot temps and a cool start to summer, and I haven't had to do much to nurture it. Of all the varieties I started late (mid-June) it is doing the best after 7 weeks, and has the thickest, crunchiest leaves that are a solid spring-green color. I get quite a kick out of getting these entire cute little heads each from one tiny seed!
