SUMMERTIME LETTUCE (68 days)

3

Germ 4-10 days
Bred by Dr. Baggett at Oregon State, the objective of Summertime was to develop a head lettuce that would mature in summer’s heat without bolting and was also resistant to tip-burn and rib discoloration. Consistently yields the highest percentage of usable heads in trials. Flavor is good & texture is very crisp. 500 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 1/4” deep in cells with soil temps 55-70 degrees. Transplant out 8-12” apart.

Outdoors- Sow 1/4” “deep, 1” apart. Thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want from baby to full heads. Keep moist during germination.

Harvest- cut whole head at base or individual leaves before lettuce starts to bolts and becomes bitter in the heat and long days summer.

Tips- Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water for optimum growth. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix for a season long supply of lettuce.

The best garden lettuce ever

Most seeds sprouted, flavor and texture is great, sort of like a crisper green leaf in stores. Grows cute little heads that don't bolt until July.

Summertime Ice.

Great tasting lettuce. Crispy. Didn't seem to mind the heat. Formed a small head, but maybe I was too impatient to eat it and picked it too soon. Definitely will be planting again!
