Lettuce 'Butter Crunch' - 100 Seeds

Butterhead lettuces are sought after for their “buttery” flavor and velvety texture. The small, loosely formed heads yield leaves that are at once delicate and yet strong enough to roll into lettuce wraps. Butterhead lettuce has soft, green, slightly curled leaves wrapped around a loose inner head of blanched, sweet-flavored, interior leaves.

Buttercrunch was developed by George Raleigh of Cornell University and is an All-American Selection winner for 1963. It was the gold standard for butterhead lettuce for years

This variety is a Butterhead type producing compact heads around 20cm. Tender & tasty leaves make a perfect addition to your salads.

Suitable for planting year-round and slow to bolt. Protect from frost in Winter months.

Produces an abundant crop.
