Lettuce, Baja (Organic)

Lactuca sativa. Green Butterhead. 55 days.

Small, dark green butterhead lettuce that is good for summer production because it is more heat resistant than most. A lot like the larger framed market farm standard, Optima, with nice thick leaves that hold up well in the market booth. Baja lettuce is a darker green color and its leaf size is perfect for burgers and BLT sandwiches. We found this great lettuce chilling out in the USDA GRIN vault.  We are not sure why this modern variety was not released by its developer, but we are happy to have found it and to have released it to the public.

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.
