2

Germ 4-10 days
This variety actually produces a full butterhead in a relatively short period of time. 6-7” heads have firm structure and compact habit. Leaves are dark green and the entire head will make a large salad for one. Can be grown 2-4 heads per square foot.  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.

Yes!

This is one of the best-tasting lettuces I've grown. I come back to it year after year because my daughter and her boyfriend insist on it! It has a wonderful buttery taste. I cut it about an inch from the ground and each head grows back. It retains its flavor until mid summer in our Northern Illinois garden.

Doing this one again!

I planted this lettuce last fall in whiskey barrels to winter over and eat during the hunger gap time in the garden. They have done great!. I was able to easily cover them if we here to have below freezing weather. I used compost and a little potting soil mix in the barrels. They have also held well into the spring. It is May and we are still eating them and they are delicious. This was done in Western Washington state..
