Little Gem lettuce
Star Route Farms, Warren Weber
Little Gem, or Sucrine, is a small lettuce often described as ‘a combination of Butter and Romaine’. It is crisp, like Romaine, and sweet, like Butter, but the texture and the flavor are still its own. Little Gem has a thinner stalk and thicker leaves which seem juicier and more substantial than any part of Romaine, and are more uniformly crisp. Little Gem tends toward a nutty flavor - walnut in particular - and a sweetness that is more reserved.
