A famous European heirloom butterhead. This early maturing lettuce is ideal for the early spring plantings under cloches. The leaves are pale green heads tinged with red and the sweet, pale yellow hearts have a pink blush to them.
Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and autumn. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
