Buttercrunch Lettuce

It boasts dark green, red-tinged leaves and forms loose 4"-6" rosettes, making it a delightful addition to any garden.

Ideal Growing Conditions For thriving Buttercrunch lettuce, it's essential to replicate optimal conditions:

  • Soil Temperature: Ensure soil temperatures range between 40-65°F for successful germination and growth.

  • Planting Depth: Sow seeds at a depth of 1/4"-1/2" for optimal growth.

  • Germination Period: Seeds typically germinate within 7-14 days under ideal conditions.

  • Maturity Time: Expect mature Buttercrunch lettuce in about 50-75 days from planting.

  • Height at Maturity: Buttercrunch lettuce reaches a modest height of 6"-10".

  • Sunlight: Provide full sun exposure for the lettuce to flourish.

  • Spacing: After thinning, maintain spacing of 4"-6" between plants for proper growth.

Planting and Growing Buttercrunch Lettuce:

  • Soil Preparation: Prepare well-draining, nutrient-rich soil. Loosen the soil and mix in compost for optimal growth.

  • Planting: Sow seeds at the recommended depth, ensuring even spacing.

  • Germination: Keep the soil consistently moist to aid germination, which typically occurs within 7-14 days.

  • Maintenance: Weed regularly to avoid competition for nutrients and water. Apply mulch to retain moisture.

  • Watering: Provide adequate moisture, aiming for around 1-1.5 inches of water per week. Avoid wetting the foliage to prevent disease.

  • Protection: In warmer climates, consider using shade cloth or planting in areas with partial shade to shield the lettuce from excessive heat.

  • Harvesting: Harvest Buttercrunch lettuce when the heads are firm, and outer leaves can be picked without damaging the plant. Cut at the base when ready to harvest.

Harvesting and Storage:

  • Picking: As Buttercrunch lettuce matures, pick outer leaves regularly while allowing the inner leaves to grow.

  • Storage: Store harvested lettuce in a plastic bag in the refrigerator to maintain freshness for an extended period.

Tips for Success:

  • Early Start: For warmer climates, start seeds indoors a few weeks before the last frost for a head start.

  • Moisture Control: Maintain consistent soil moisture without overwatering to avoid root rot.

  • Seed Preparation: Consider germinating seeds between moist paper towels prior to planting for faster and more uniform germination.

  • Potting Mix: For containers, use a quality potting mix enriched with compost.

Germinated and grew

All of the lettuce blends I purchased germinated and grew well. To follow our homesteading journey, be sure to visit Vintage-Virtues.com

Unhealthy seeds

Two stars because I had great germination rates, but the seedling's leaves grew weirdly shaped (almost shriveled-like in appearance). At first I thought it was due to my growing errors, but after a few trials of the same results (and only one success which ended up growing colored specks on the leaves in maturity) I ended up buying a new packet of Buttercrunch seeds from another store, and using the same growing methods they grew perfectly fine, no spots, and very quickly.
