Adaptive Seeds Butterheads Up Mix (Organic)

Lactuca sativa. 55 days.

For those of you who would rather grow head lettuce than baby salad mix, this mix is for you. Includes nothing but butterhead varieties. Colors range from light green to dark red. All will make good, dense heads suitable for salads, sandwiches, or use as lettuce wraps. Can also be cultivated and harvested for baby mix if that’s your thing (or check out our other lettuce mixes).

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil year-round. Transplant into the garden at 1′ spacing 3-4 weeks after sprouting. Alternatively, direct sow March through September. In our area, lettuce can go through winter if protected. Succession sow for continual harvest.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds when flowers are downy like dandelions. Cut seed heads and place upside down in a bag to dry for a few days. Knock seed heads against side of bucket or tote, rub downy fluff off seeds. Winnow and screen to clean.
