We love this melt-in-your-mouth butterhead with dark green outer leaves that blanch each sweet, exceptionally tender inner heart. Optima is vigorous, remarkably uniform and more bolt resistant in the summer heat than most.

Organic Optima Lettuce We love this melt-in-your-mouth butterhead with dark green outer leaves that blanch each sweet, exceptionally tender inner heart. Optima is vigorous, remarkably uniform and more bolt resistant in the summer heat than most. In 2013 we lost 80% of the crop to bacterial wilt (Erwinia), but the survivors made seed that much more resilient in our often wet springs. (Regional adaptation is the heart of sustainable agriculture.)
