A bibb type lettuce that was developed at Cornell University in the early 1960’s. It has wonderful crispness and buttery leaves that are great for salads or sandwiches. A more heat tolerant lettuce, this does well for us in our hot New Mexico climate.
Planting Instructions: Lettuce is hardy and can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked. Lettuce grows best in temperatures hovering around 60-65 degrees. Sow every couple of weeks for a continuous supply. Sow seeds 1 inch apart in rows 8-12 inches apart. Cover seed lightly and firm soil gently. Thin to 8 inches between heads. Lettuce will germinate well in cooler soil, but poorly in soils warmer than 75 degrees.
Germinate: 5-10 days
Harvest: 65 days
