Green Mignonette is part of the Lettuce genus and is a Lettuce variety. Its scientific name is Lactuca sativa 'Green Mignonette'. Green Mignonette is generally thought of as a heirloom open-polliated variety.

Slow bolting and heat tolerant. Great for hydroponic culture.

A delicious butterhead type lettuce, with a mild flavor similar to Bibb. As with most butterheads this is a small lettuce best harvested when under 1 lb. in weight.
When hydroponically grown this has light green leaves, but I imagine they can become dark green if grown in soil.

As with most butterhead lettuces it has fragile, highly edible leaves that bruise easily from harsh weather and that tempt many pests such as bugs, snails and wildlife to eat them, which is why I usually grow it indoors.
Also, it’s susceptible to tip burn during hot or dry periods, another reason to grow it indoors, or in partial shade in Summertime.

This variety is marketed under the names ‘Anuenue’ and ‘Manoa’, in the Hawaiian islands.

This variety is an Vegetable that typically grows as an Annual, which is defined as a plant that matures and completes its lifecycle over the course of a single year. Green Mignonette normally reaches to a mature height of 7.8 inches (20.0 cm).

France is believed to be where Green Mignonette originates from.

Green Mignonette Lettuce is great for inexperienced gardeners and those that like low maintainance gardens.
