Lettuce - Buttercrunch - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual. This bibb-type head lettuce has a large compact yellow-white heart. It grows dark-green, red-tinged, thick, tender, richly flavored leaves in loose 4" rosettes. This heat-resistant variety is long lasting, bolt resistant, and free of mosaic disease.

Soil & Water: Lettuce likes full sun except in hot summer climates where it prefers some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown from spring through fall.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the entire plant when mature, but still young and crisp. All lettuces are at their best when picked as needed and used immediately. Head lettuce will only last a few days in the refrigerator before deteriorating.

Did You Know? Lettuce is a good source of vitamin A.
