Pirat Lettuce Seeds (Organic)

Garden Fresh Choice

Welcoming Pirat Lettuce, a distinct lettuce variety derived from the Lactuca sativa species. This lettuce cultivar is a fusion of popular subspecies, including Romaine Lettuce, Butterhead Lettuce, and Leaf Lettuce.

Pirat Lettuce is characterized by its lush, vibrant green leaves, forming a loose, open head. The leaves are tender, with a delicate, buttery texture. Its flavor profile offers a mild, slightly bitter undertone, enhancing the complexity of salads and complementing various dressings and toppings.

When cultivating Pirat Lettuce from seed, specific growing conditions are essential for optimal results. It thrives in well-drained, nutrient-rich soil with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.0. Plant the seeds in early spring or late summer, depending on your local climate. Adequate spacing, consistent moisture, and partial to full sun exposure are crucial for healthy growth.

Harvesting Pirat Lettuce is a straightforward process. You can pluck individual leaves as needed for various dishes or trim the outer leaves for continuous regrowth. This lettuce variety not only enhances the visual appeal of your garden but also offers a flavorful addition to your culinary creations.

Planting & Care

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: Begin harvesting outer leaves as soon as they are large enough and continue until a central stalk begins to form, which signals the end of the harvest period. You can also harvest the entire plant when it's mature but still young and crisp.
