PLANTING

Lactuca sativa

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-70ºF. Soil temperatures above 75 ºF inhibits germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep

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

Sowing Outdoors: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50ºF. 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 1/2 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.

How much does a packet plant: 25-40 foot single row  

Harvest: Cut whole heads, full sized or baby 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.

Decent success

I planted this for a fall crop. I planted it in three different areas. One raised bed is not doing well. I also planted some in pots. One is doing really well, and the other is okay. I had some with a salad and it tasted great!

Super tasty lettuce

I started my lettuce indoors and this variety is an easy starter with all the seeds springing up into plants quickly. I lost no plants in transplanting and the heads grew so quickly I had plenty to give away as the weather turned hot and I feared they would bolt. Curiously, instead of bolting, they merely cooked in the heat. They did, however stay sweet right up to the end. I will plant these again.

All season crop

I have grown winter density for about 5 years in Central Ct which is zone 6. It had been very reliable as both a spring, early fall and late fall/early winter crop. If you have a greenhouse I would expect it could possibly be harvested all winter. Has a nice flavor and not bothered by any insects.
