lactuca sativa

Webb’s Wonderful Heirloom is a crisphead/iceberg lettuce that is heat tolerant thus very slow to bolt, and adapts well to wet and dry conditions. It is an old English heirloom from the 19th century that has thick, crunchy (yet still buttery) bright green leaves. You can harvest the whole head or pick the big outside leaves as desired. Excellent for home gardeners and market growers. 

Days to Maturity: 65-70 days. Open pollinated. 

Seeds per pack approx 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. 

Companion plants: carrots, radish, cucumbers, beans.
