Lettuce, Bunyards Matchless (Organic)

Lactuca sativa. Bronze Romaine. 30 days baby; 60 full.

Large, open heads are dark green with some bronze tint. Similar to George Richardson, Brown Goldring, and other Bath Cos types. Crunchy with distinctive nutty, sweet delicious flavor. This English heirloom is both cold and heat tolerant. Scored higher overall than most other lettuces for both agronomic and eating qualities in the Heritage Seed Library’s 2008 Leafy Vegetable Project evaluation. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by the Heritage Seed Library in England. Aka, Bunyard’s Matchless.

Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil year round. Transplant into the garden 3-4 weeks after sprouting. Alternatively, direct sow March- September. In our area, lettuce can grow through winter when given protection. Sow in succession for continual harvest.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds when flowers have become downy like dandelions. Cut seedheads off and place upside down in a bag for a few days to dry. Shake seedheads against the sides of a bucket, rub down off of seeds, and winnow to clean.
