Lettuce 'Tango'

Fresh tender leaves are tightly ruffled and an attractive deep green colour. Its a popular cutting variety with market and home gardeners alike. One of the best summer varieites as it is slower to bolt to seed than most lettuces.

How to grow

The best lettuces are grown fast. Grow them in beds that have just been vacated by peas or beans as all leaf crops, especially lettuce, enjoy plenty of nitrogen. Loose soil with plenty of organic matter will retain moisture and added potash will see them grow without check. Premature bolting and subsequent bitterness is usually the result of stress – this can be caused by poor transplanting techniques, damage to their shallow roots, lack of fertiliser (soil nutrients) or lack of water during hot/dry periods. Mulch well to conserve soil moisture.
