Sword Leaf lettuce is also know as Pointed Leaf lettuce and Oriental lettuce. In Taiwan it is referred to as "a choy" and is very popular as a vegetable green. The lettuce has long pointed bright green leaves. Harvest at an early stage when approximately 10" tall and stems are young and crispy. An excellent choice for home gardeners.
Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. In cool areas sow seeds in spring/early summer after last frost in a sunny location. In temperate areas, sow in spring or fall. In tropical areas, sow year round. Seeds need light to germinate, so do not plant too deep. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Harvest when approximately 10" tall.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
