Product Description

Sweetheart Lettage may be a cabbage, but its tender, crisp leaves can be used like lettuce! Those sweet and mild-flavored leaves are far less leathery than a typical cabbage, but can still be used as you would other cabbages. Chop into stir-fries and slaws to show off its delicious cabbage-like qualities, or tear the broad leaves into smaller pieces to fill a salad with colorful greens more nutritious than plain lettuce. Use the whole leaves to make delicious, healthy wraps, too. With a distinctive cone-shaped mini head, Sweetheart Lettage takes up less space in the garden than a typical cabbage. 68 days to maturity.
