Little Gem Lettuce Mix Art Pack Seeds
Glimmering lettuces cute enough to eat.
Small vegetables are not just for small gardens. They are, in fact, for all who enjoy exceptional eating. Little fingerling potatoes have a texture and flavor unmatched by any larger roots; slender, diminutive French beans simply melt in the mouth; and these tiny lettuce heads, maxing out at about 8" in diameter, deliver delicate texture and sweetness rarely seen in giant heads. They are also charming in the garden: their compact, tidy forms contribute an air of formality and neatness, especially when laid out in a grid. Cut into wedges at the mature-head stage, they make stunning, glimmering salads.
Contains Little Gem, Tom Thumb, Lollo Rossa Dark, Tango, and Ashley lettuces.

Hudson Valley Seed Co. Art Packs unite practical aspirations in the garden with the universal human desire for beauty, meaning, and joy. Each year, they release a call for art seeking artists to interpret the varieties in their collection, and hundreds of artists apply from across the United States. But there’s a lot more to an Art Pack than the beautiful exterior. Open it up, and a whole seedy world unfolds.
Meet the Makers
Hudson Valley Seed Co is the best source for heirloom and open-pollinated garden seeds and beautiful garden-themed contemporary art. They are a values-driven seed company that practices and celebrates responsible seed production and stewardship. They have our own certified organic farm in upstate New York where they produce much of what they sell.
The folks at Hudson Valley Seed Company are both farmers and storytellers who are committed to growing organically, sourcing locally and sustainably, and preserving crop diversity by selecting unique, rare, and hard-to-find varieties. Every seed in their catalog is open pollinated, many are heirloom and organic, and they are never GMO. They believe that a seed is more than meets the eye: it is a time capsule telling tales of the plants, crops, and people that came before us, and they work with a range of artists as diverse as their seeds to pass those stories down to present and future gardeners.
