SUMMER CRISP / Batavian
Lettuce Seeds

Lactuca sativa

Open pollinated

In our opinion, Summer Crisp (aka Batavian) lettuces are the absolute finest group of lettuces to grow. They can be produced under cool conditions (like other lettuces), yet still will be standing, long after other heat resistant lettuces have bolted. Pick leaves at baby size, or allow plants to head. Summer Crisp lettuce can be harvested by removing a few of the outer leaves of the head; the plants will continue to grow and produce. Or alternatively, harvest entire large, gorgeous head at once. Leaves are thick, juicy, and flavorful. Summer Crisp lettuces are extraordinarily heat tolerant.
