A great-tasting lettuce for hot summers.
The complex, non-bitter flavor really impressed us.
This new variety has the heat-resistance of a Batavian
with the flavor of Bronze Goldring, its other parent. Another great lettuce from open-source breeder Frank Morton.
BOTANICAL NAME: Lactuca sativa
Start in flats or direct seed. Cold frames extend season. Fertile, composted soil that is loose, not too acid,well-drained , and in good tilth with adequate nitrogen and moisture promotes fast growth for best flavor. In hot climates use shade cloth mid day to keep plants cool or plant where there is morning sun only. Plant every three weeks for continuous harvest. Seed that has been stored over 80 degrees may need a week in the fridge before planting to ensure germination.
