Butterhead. Also known as Marvel of Four Seasons, this variety offers a head containing pretty reddish bibb-type rosettes. This head does well in all sorts of climates and can withstand heat, but its dark red color develops best in cool spring or autumn weather. The leaves offer a crisp texture and excellent flavour, perfect for salads and sandwiches.
Sow direct seed 1” apart and ¼” in depth. Germination period is 7-14 days. Sow continuously for a constant supply of lettuce. Best grown in cooler weather. Plant in full sun or partial shade. Lettuce should be kept moist, since lettuce leaves are mostly water and will desiccate and wilt in strong sunlight and dry soil.
