Buttercrunch Lettuce (Lactuca sativa)
A delectable butterhead variety with tender yet crisp leaves and no bitterness. If you grow only one type of lettuce, this is a great choice. More heat tolerant than other varieties.

This was the first lettuce variety I ever grew in my garden and it was absolutely delicious! Big and beautiful leaves that did well in the Florida heat. Highly recommend!
Wonderful lettuce with superb flavor. With the intense dry heat this year, it was very slow to bolt and not at all bitter. In cooler, moist growing conditions - the best!
