Prizehead Lettuce

Lettuce Prizehead

A non heading leaf lettuce with curled light green leaves tinged with bronze at the tips. A beautiful, easy to grow lettuce for the home garden. Approximately 50 days to maturity. 

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Start early indoors or seed directly outdoors from early to mid spring and again in late summer to early fall. Cover with 1/8 inch light soil. 

SPACING: Leave 18 inches between rows. For bedding in small areas space 10 to 12 inches apart in all directions. 

THINNING & TRANSPLANTINGOnce plants are established thin to 10 to 12 inches apart.  Seedlings started indoors can be planted outside after danger of severe frost has passed. 

GERMINATION: Approx. one week to ten days. Start seed in cool 55 to 60 degree temperatures.

Ed's Special Advice

Keep soil moderately moist. Well fertilized soil produces quickly grown, crisp leaf lettuce. Sow seed every two weeks, March to August for continued harvesting. Provide some shade and extra water for summer crops. Harvest outer leaves as needed or cut entire plant.
