Looseleaf lettuces are fast growing and don't form tight heads. This makes them ideal for growing as salad mix. Seed mixes often include a variety of lettuce types that have different colors and textures. Looseleaf lettuce is harvested by cutting the outer leaves or by cutting the entire plant in a "cut-and-come-again" method. Lettuce is generally a cool-weather crop, but some varieties are heat-tolerant.
