Lettuce - - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual Heirloom. This head lettuce is an unusual French Bibb variety. It is a ruby-red butter lettuce with tightly folded, green hearts. It has excellent flavor in hot weather with crisp yet tender leaves, but tends to bolt. This variety was introduced in 1885.

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.
