Summer Crisp Lettuce Seeds (Lactuca sativa var. longifolia)
- Summer crisp types are easy to grow, relatively tolerant of hot weather, and harvestable from baby-leaf to full size. Very crisp like romaine, but sweet and juicy, normally without bitterness.
- Concept exhibits the characteristics of both romaine and summer crisp lettuce. The shape of the summer crisp plant is at first open, much like a loose-leaf lettuce, then matures into a heavy, compact bunch or head. Summer crisp lettuces perform best given slightly more fertility than loose leaf types. As the vase-shaped plants mature, the whorled leaves close into a tight head.
