GREAT LAKES

$2.09 / packet

Description

This heritage, medium to large-hearted lettuce, was the first true iceberg-type lettuce, with a denser head than any European variety bred prior to it. It produces crisp, bright green leaved heads in 90 days, and stands well without bolting during hot summer weather as well as doing well when sown in succession for summer cropping. It is now almost forgotten, but not by knowledgeable backyard gardeners and farmers market growers!

Sowing Advice

Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually, enjoying the thinnings in an early salad or two. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and fall. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
