Also known as Boston or Bibb, Butterhead lettuce has a very delicate texture resulting in exquisite salads, and bestows a certain silky elegance to sandwiches. Plant Butterhead lettuce in the early spring, then sow seeds at two week intervals through late spring or early summer depending on the climate. Additionally, in areas with a long fall season, Butterhead seeds can be started in mid or late summer for an autumn harvest.
