"Mistress" lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a medium early variety intended for cultivation late in spring, in summer and early in autumn. This variety stands out with extreme resistance to popular lettuce diseases. Large, tender leaves are loosely gathered in large, slightly flattened heads. These take on an attractive, pale green colour and are shiny. Lettuce does not only taste great, but it is also healthy. We recommend to include it in your daily diet as a valuable source of minerals and vitamins. "Mistress" lettuce is intended for direct, raw consumption in salads and sandwiches, but it can also be used as plate garnish.
Lettuce seeds are sown already at the beginning of February (until April) in a warm room. You have to wait with the direct sow outside until April. At that time you should also transplant the seedlings to the soil. "Mistress" lettuce should be sown in batches until end of August, what would maximally extend the harvest time. That way you will have steady supply of fresh heads until end of October. Butterhead lettuce yields best crops in warm, moderately moist soils that are rich in humus and nutrients.
