Lettuce, Brune Percherone (Organic)

Lactuca sativa. Red Blushed Butterhead. 60 days.

An apple green butterhead tinged with a red-pink blush. Early, big, heavy heads grow well in difficult conditions and are heat resistant. An old variety known in Europe since around 1907. Most recently preserved from extinction by the seed saving groups Kokopelli in France, and Pro Specie Rara in Switzerland. We found Brune Percherone with Pro Specie Rara during our 2007 Seed Ambassadors trip.

Geographical Origin

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.
