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

Review:

The best lettuce I think I've ever had the pleasure to put on my plate. Super silky soft leaves. I'll never go without this again! And 60 days to maturity is dead on for this. I harvested almost to the day, 60 days after sowing the seeds. I grew my first one in a small "planting up" pot that we all have a ton of.

Review:

This lettuce was great! I'm a total beginner, but I was able to grow this without any trouble. I grew mine in a burlap bag that I made, I'm also growing some in terracotta pots and soon in a raised bed. It's really easy to grow and it seems to grow quickly. My soil is probably not the best and I don't have access to compost, but it still grew as big as my hand! Perfect size for a small salad(add a little kale and some dressing and you're good to go!) It tasted pretty good too. I will be growing this again and again! It as also very easy to germinate. I used little ice cream cups from the dollar store filled with soil. I don't remember counting the seeds, but I got a ton of sprouts and they transplanted fairly easily. They also survived some cold winter night neglect and sometimes a little bit of a drought if I didn't give myself enough time in the morning to water the garden. This was much easier to grow than the two types of kale I have growing.

Review:

Love Love Love! Cute little sweet yummy heads, planted under Brussels sprouts to shade from heat, have not bolted or become bitter where all my other lettuces already are. Add a little arugula and it makes the most delicious salad ever. Buying more seeds!

What are the pros? tiny yet strong

Review:

The tom thumb is excellent for growing between rows in my raised beds. The heads are sweet, perfect sized and compact. I highly recommend this variety for container gardening or raised beds for those who have limited space. It helped fill up gaps between rows in my garden. Tastes very sweet and doesn't get bitter in the heat of the summer because it is smaller and shaded in the rows. An awesome find and I plan on growing every year.
