Lactuca sativa

A mix of colors and textures for baby leaf lettuce. Enjoy all season long. Direct sow.


In the Pali language of ancient Buddhism, "Metta" is the word for loving-kindness, the attribute of benevolence and good will felt toward others. In our neck of the woods, "Metta" comprises the first two syllables of the name of our road and the nearby hamlet: Mettacahonts, a word likely of Mahican origin that means "tree-shaded creek." So, we named this lovely lettuce mix "Metta" to express our love for it and to help our customers feel connected to our beautiful corner of the world.


This mix includes some of our very favourite lettuces, that all produce a baby leaf together: Flashy Butter Oak, Rouge d'Hiver, Buttercrunch Bibb, Tango, and Hyper-Red Rumpled Wave. Seed as season long, and cut each seeding 2-3 times before moving on to the next. You can also thin and allow plants to produce mature heads.
