65 day. A wonderful butterhead lettuce. Tender, yet firm green leaves with little to no bitterness. If you can only grow one kind of lettuce, this is an excellent choice.
Minimum of 250 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 0-1/4 inch
Plant Spacing: 3-6 inches
Row Spacing: 12-18 inches
Recommended: Direct seed in spring 2-4 weeks before last frost.
You can also start indoors and transplant when individual plants are about 3 inches tall.
In fall, plant 6-8 weeks before first frost.
Lettuce does not like heat and will get bitter and bolt (go to flower) if the temperatures are too warm. Cut off the flower stalks to extend the life of your lettuce. You can also bring indoors, if in a planter, and set in a sunny (preferably southern facing) window to extend the life of the plant.

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!
