This is a butterhead type of lettuce producing a moderately tight head. Prized for its taste and texture. The inner leaves blanch to a light yellow with a smooth texture and mild flavour. The crispy outer leaves are loosely folded and dark green, often tinged with brown. The flavour is best if timed to mature during cool weather.

Grows best in organic, well-drained soil in sunny locations. Lettuce is a cool weather crop. Sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring, then every two weeks thereafter to ensure a continuous supply. An even supply of moisture during the entire growth period is imperative for success. Harvest leaf lettuce by either pulling the entire plant or by cutting leaves from the main stem at least 1in/2.5cm above the base – this will allow the plant to sprout new leaves. Harvest head lettuce by cutting the head off at the base just below the lower leaves. Once lettuce bolts (starts to produce a rapidly growing flower stem), leaves will become bitter.
