Lactuca sativa

A beautiful Australian lettuce with loose leaf structure, tender, smooth, early leaves and large crinkled leaves on maturity. Moderate resistance to bolting.

Lettuce prefers cooler growing conditions in well-drained, loose soil with consistent water. Needs daily water and shade in warmer weather to prevent a bitter flavour and bolting to seed. Pick a few leaves at a time when needed.
