Lactuca sativa capitata

Firm, crisp head with excellent taste and good heat resistance. Stores nicely and remains crisp even when stored in the refrigerator for several days. Tip: layer with paper towels to prolong crispness in the fridge. A reliable heirloom variety still going strong after more than 100 years. Good source of vitamin A.

Excellent for harvest of outer leaves instead of heads when growing vertically, one of Grow Towers' favorites!

Sun to partial shade. Thrives in porous, humus-rich soil.

Pre-cultivation: For earlier harvest, 3-4 years before planting out.

Direct sowing: Early, as soon as the soil can be cultivated - July. Water before sowing and keep moist during germination. Lettuce has difficulty germinating when the heat is too high, no higher than +20C.

Plant spacing: 35cm / 1 plant per GreenStalk pocket for heads, 2 plants for harvest of leaves

Sow depth, cm: 0.5


Plant position: Sun - partial shade
