Latin Name: Lactuca sativa
Description: Lettuce Catalogna is a loose leaf, cut and come again lettuce. It is a very tasty lettuce. It is firm, with dark green incised leaves. It does not bolt quickly, and it is not very sensitive to diseases. Frequent harvesting will increase growth and promote leaves to “come again”. Also grown as a baby leaf.
Germination Rate: 99%
Seed Origin: Netherlands
Sowing: March to June
Harvesting: May to October
How To Grow Cut and Come Again Lettuce From Seed: Sow from March onwards under protection, either in pots or seed starting modules. When large enough to handle, transplant outside, setting plants 20-25cm apart.
Alternatively, direct sow mid-April onwards into 2cm deep drills, and thin to one plant per 20-25cm when large enough to handle.
Cut regularly to encourage a constant supply of new leaves. New leaves are sweeter than larger, older leaves. This lettuce performs best if it is not let grow taller than 30cm.

About our Organic Irish Vegetable Seeds
We are passionate about providing high quality organic and open-pollinated seed to all of our customers. The term, open-pollinated seed means, seed that comes from plants where pollination has happened naturally.
Benefits of using open-pollinated seed: These seeds have been around much longer than F1 hybrid or genetically modified seed, therefore they evolve with our environment. The plants they produce are much more genetically diverse and therefore will have a much higher benefit to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Furthermore, using open-pollinated seed means you can produce the same plant the following season from saved seed.
This is not always the case with F1 hybrid and genetically modified seed.
