Product Description

One reason the Heirloom Organics Salad Pack is so popular is that lettuce and other salad greens can be grown indoors (year-round) or outdoors and in all light conditions including no direct sunlight. The Salad Pack  provides the quickest growing varieties you can find, all 100% non-hybrid and non-GMO.

Pack Contents:

Arugula: Roquette

Arugula is an aromatic, peppery salad green. It is also known as roquette, rocket, rugula and rucola, and is very popular in Italian cuisine. It grows wild in Asia and all over the entire Mediterranean --- and has been known to be cultivated and enjoyed in places as exotic as the north of Sudan. In Roman times arugula was grown for both its leaves and the seed. The seed was used for flavoring oils.

Endive: Green Curled Ruffec
Endive is a half-hardy biennial that is grown as an annual. It has a large rosette of toothed, curled, or wavy leaves that are used in salads as a substitute for lettuce.

Lettuce: Bibb

Bibb lettuce, also known as limestone lettuce, is a variety of butterhead lettuce with loose, delicate, and crisp but tender leaves. It was first grown by Jack Bibb, a Kentucky amateur horticulturist, in the late 1800s, which is where its name originated. However, it is also known as limestone lettuce due to the limestone found in the soil where it was first grown.

Lettuce: Oakleaf

The flavor of Oakleaf is distinctive. It has a slight mineral component combined with nuttiness, and rather than the tang of Romaine, there's the suggestion of white wine. The leaves are thin and tender. If you use it in sandwiches, they should be eaten shortly after preparation, as the lettuce will wilt otherwise. If you use it in salad, you probably want to use a thin dressing, rather than burden the leaves with a heavy cream. The lettuce's flavor will go well with the usual salad accessories (tomato, cucumber, scallions) and is a good complement for almonds or walnuts, too. The color and shape of Oakleaf make it useful as a garnish or as a base for presenting various other foods, but it would be a shame to leave the leaves uneaten.

Lettuce: Red Salad Bowl

Add a splash of color to salads! Reddish-bronze leaves are long, deeply lobed and have a delicate flavor and texture. Slow bolting variety allows for a long harvesting period.

Lettuce: Romaine Parris Island

Named for Parris Island off the coast of South Carolina, this old favorite Romaine deserves a try by any lettuce lover. 'Crunchy leaves', 'creamy white heart', and 'vigorous' are just a few of the words that describe this variety.

Mesclun Mix
Mesclun lettuce is also known as wild or baby lettuce. Mesclun isn't a single variety of lettuce. Rather, it's a combination of several varieties of loose leaf lettuces, all in one seed packet. It originally came from European nations specifically the Italian and French regions. Today it's gaining popularity all around the world. The dictionary definition states it can also contain a variety of herbs and even edible flowering plants. Gardeners love this loose leaf mixture, as it spells "variety" in the salad bowl. Mesclun lovers savor the varying colors, textures, and tastes. Grow mesclun lettuce for a delicious addition to any salad.
