Cocodelo (small headed) Head lettuce

This small-headed, dark-green lettuce has a firm core. The leaves are fleshy, crisp, and extraordinarily sweet. The sweetness and lack of bitterness makes it resemble romaine lettuce. Because it rarely bolts, it is regarded as a year-round lettuce.

Sow from March 20 to July 10 in seedling trays. Four weeks later, transplant in the field at a spacing of 25 ✕ 25 cm. Harvest from May 20 continuously for a fresh supply.
