Description

Buttercrunch Bibb Lettuce - Better Than Butter

This lettuce has thick, juicy leaves folded into crisp, tender heads.  More compact with dark green reddish-tinged 4 1/2" rosette heads. Wonderful, buttery flavor.

Heat resistant, slow to bolt, remains sweet even after going to seed. One of the highest quality bibb varieties available. 

Originally breed by Cornell University and was the winner of the All American Selection in 1963.

History

Lettuce is thought to have originated in Asia Minor, probably from one of the wild lettuce types, of which there are more than 100 varieties. Lettuce graced the tables of Persian kings, Roman senators, and medieval lords. It has been food for peasant and noble alike for hundreds of years. Lettuce was also prized medicinally for its cooling powers and was used to tame fevers, liver inflammations and lust. 

Uses

Leaves are used in salads and on sandwiches.

Growing Tip

Mulching your lettuce plants will help the shallow root system maintain even moisture. Try to keep constant moisture by watering the soil not the leaves.
