Lactuca sativa
Buttercrunch Lettuce Seeds (65 days)

 



Buttercrunch was developed by George Raleigh of Cornell University.

Buttercrunch produces a nice head of mild buttery flavored 6-8" in height, thick, juicy, slightly crumpled dark green leaves and white-yellow heart.

Very long season.  Performs well in spring and fall.

 
Don't forget the heart, which is some folk's favorite!  Buttercrunch is slow to bolt and is heat tolerant.

Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region . CA, FL, ID, IL, KS, LA, OK, OR, TX

Planting Tips:

Sow directly into very fertile, loose soil.  Thin down to final spacing once plants are established.  For best results, plant in spring or fall.  Harvest outside leaves for a continual harvest.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heat Tolerance:  If you are growing lettuce in the heat, plant them where they will get afternoon shade.  Lettuce is a spring and fall crop in really hot areas.

Harvest Tips: For a continual harvest, sow every 2-3 weeks a new crop if cutting full heads, otherwise harvesting outside leaves will encourage a longer harvest from individual plants.

Seeding Rate:

30,000 plants/acre, aproximately 2 oz.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
