Sandy lettuce might sound a little unappealing at first, but it's delicious! Sandy is a beautiful green oakleaf (loose leaf) type lettuce and is tasty and disease resistant. Sandy can be used as a cut and come again baby lettuce or allowed to grow to maturity for a loose head lettuce. It can be grown successfully in raised beds or containers.
