Lollo Bionda Lettuce (53 Days)

This Italian sister lettuce of Lollo Rossa is refreshingly crisp with a perfect round head of frilly leaves. Harvest the singular leaves as you need them or the entire mounded, fluffy sphere. Holds well in the heat and the cold. 

500 seeds

Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1” apart, thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want, baby to full heads. Keep soil moist during germination. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a longer harvest period. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.

Starting Indoors:  3-4 weeks before planting outsideSow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70 degrees F soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row  

Harvest: Cut whole heads at base or snipe off individual leaves.  

Tips: Lettuce needs fertile soil for optimum growth. Work in compost or well rotted manure into your soil before planting. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Lollo Biondo Lettuce

Shopping with Pinetree was great. Straightforward ordering and prompt shipping. Lollo Bionda Lettuce seeds were several days slower to germinate than the other 2 lettuce varieties I purchased (Baby Oakleaf and Tom Thumb). I'm growing indoors and have only harvested one set of outer leaves so far. Those few leaves looked good in a salad -- light green and more frilly than the other 2 varieties -- and tasted great.
