lactuca sativa

Annual plant, open pollinated. 

This is an old French heirloom variety of butterhead lettuce. Also known as Winter Bourguignonne or Winter Blond, it has large, wavy green leaves, and is a very adaptable variety that grows well in almost all climate zones. It is also very heat resistant.  It is originally from France, referenced in Vilmorin-Andrieux’s 1885 “Les Plantes Potagères”. 

Matures: 54 days. 

Seeds per pack: approximately 200. 

Seed starting:

Lettuce can be started indoors or directly seeded in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. If starting indoors, sow 2-3 seeds per pot and thin to one. Transplant outdoors after 3 weeks. If direct seeding outdoors, for full sized heads plant 3 seeds per 8 inches, and thin to one seedling per group. Cover the soil every so lightly! 

Sow every three weeks for a continuous supply all summer long.
