57 days. Lactuca sativa. Open Pollinated. The plant produces excellent yields of smooth dark green heads of lettuce. It is crisp and delicious. This butterhead variety is known for its taste and texture. Great in salads and garnishes. Suitable for hydroponics gardening. Excellent choice for home gardens and market growers. Lt. John B. Bibb served in the War of 1812 and represented Logan County in the Kentucky House of Representatives, and the state Senate from 1827 to 1834. He was also an amateur horticulturist and developed the Bibb lettuce we know and love today. An heirloom variety. United States Department of Agriculture, PI 536697.

Butterhead Lettuce Seed Planting Information:

Butterhead lettuce can be grown anywhere as long as you have composted soil. Lettuce grows best if planted indoors and transplanted outdoors in early spring. Lettuce does well in composted soil. It does not do well in clay soil. Make successive plantings. Plant your seeds indoors 3 to 6 weeks before setting outside. Lettuce will better tolerate heat if plants are well thinned and air can circulate around them. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, and fall planting done around June or July. Plants grow 2 - 10" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile sandy soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells. Water in the morning only, on the side of the plants and not directly on the leaves.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro periodically.

Harvest Tips:

Pick outer leaves of butterhead lettuce, or cut the entire head about 1" above the soil. A new head may grow.
