Plant Information

This is the one with flavorful "butterhead type" heads of lettuce--the loosely held "head lettuce," actually somewhere between "head" and "leaf lettuce." It has a buttery flavored taste and broad green leaves. The best part is the center heart of folded leaves and their tender ribs.

When and Where to Plant: Lettuce is a cool-weather crop. Select a sunny location, cultivate and fertilize soil with vegetable food. Plant in early spring as soon as soil can be worked. Sow seed sparingly, firming soil over row. Repeat at 2 week intervals as long as weather is cool – spring and fall. For earliest crop start seeds indoors.
Care: Water lightly and regularly. Protect from pests.
Harvesting: Pull entire plant or cut off 1-2"/3-5 cm. above ground.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
