HEIRLOOM If you’re looking for bolt-resistant, buttery tender lettuce with delightfully crunchy mid-ribs to tuck on your sandwiches and toss in salads in the height of summer, you won’t be disappointed by Gentilina. Lime green and brilliantly ruffled, Gentilina is lovely as both tender baby greens and flavorful, massive heads, thriving in containers and raised beds as well as garden soil.

We’ve ‘saved’ Gentilina seed (who’s saving who?!!) for nearly a decade and we hope you do too, as well as our collective great-great-grandchildren ~
