Buttercrunch Bibb Lettuce

In Stock

Long standing, heat tolerant, and dark green with reddish tints.

55 to 60 days — 'Buttercrunch' is a bibb-type lettuce that is long standing (slow to bolt), heat tolerant, and dark green with reddish tints. Its large heads are rosette shaped with thick leaves. Bred and introduced by Cornell University in 1963,[1] 'Buttercrunch' was an "All-America Selection®" winner that same year. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.
Nice dark green flat leaves.
Good lettuce. Grew well right along with my 'Black Seeded Simpson'. Slow to bolt. Nice, dark-green, flat leaves. It is setting seed for me at the moment for next year.

VSC NOTES: Thank you for the report, Michael. I just want to point out to other seed savers that although some reports state that lettuce varieties do not readily cross, separating varieties by 25 feet or caging is recommended to maintain purity. ~Mike

Good flavor, solid producer
I grew a row of buttercrunch and all-the-year-round from direct seed last fall and it produced great up through the first couple frosts. I planted in mid-august after my summer squash played out and enjoyed until early December. I still have some seed left and look forward to growing a larger patch this fall. Great value and germination rates.
