lactuca sativa

An old, beautiful French butterhead heirloom lettuce from the 1800s. It has tender, sweet crumpled leaves that are green at the base that turn into a beautiful red-wine on the edges. This variety grows very big heads, and is quite heat tolerant. A favorite at Junco seeds! 

Matures: 60 days. 

200 seeds per pack 

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. 

Companion plants: carrots, radish, cucumbers, beans.
