Lettuce Butter Crunch

14 Mar , 2015  

lettuce butter crunch Lettuce Butter CrunchLatin Name: Lactuca sativa

Description: ‘Buttercrunch’ is a butterhead lettuce generally ready to harvest 70 days after sowing. Similar to the bibb types, this letuce differs in its thick green leaves and small, tight head. It maintains its sweetness well when grown in the heat of summer, like other buttercrunches. Goes into fall without bolting. Start from seed 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost date. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in wide rows and thin to 8 to 12 inches apart.
