Organic Heat-Tolerant Lettuce

Heat-tolerant lettuces surround us with abundance in the heat of summer when so many lettuces simply prefer to bolt, becoming bitter as they send up their seed stalk. Butterheads with their blanched, sweet hearts are luscious in summer while romaines resist bolting while always bringing the crunch! At Fruition, we direct sow baby leaf lettuce as well as transplant seedlings in soil blocks for lettuce heads, focusing on heat-tolerant varieties May through August.
