Planted mesclun for first time. What is the bitter tasting lettuce that looks like an over-grown radish top? Should it really taste that bitter?

Mesclun mixes vary, so I'm not sure from your description what that is. The contents should be on the seed pack, so you can probably figure it out by process of elimination. If you can't, send another e-mail to the database listing all the greens in the mix, and we'll try to figure it out. Mesclun mixes include 1 or 2 bitter greens. I know that I don't want to eat a whole salad bowl full of them, but just a bite or two does add some zing. Enjoy!
