Lettuce, Tom Thumb #5033 CO2
50—70 days. Thought to be the oldest American Lettuce still being cultivated, it can be traced back to 1830. The heads will fit in your hand, small in size, huge in taste and flavour. Delicate, beautiful, scrumptious.
Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Plant seeds 1" apart and 1⁄4" deep. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Thin to 6-8" apart for Looseleaf, 10" apart for Romaine, and 10-12" apart for Crisphead. Sow continuously for a constant supply of lettuce. Lettuce is best grown in cooler weather and prefers full sun or partial shade.
