Butterhead ‘all year round’ Lettuce

A lettuce variety that does well in a backyard vegetable garden is called Butterhead ‘all year round’ Lettuce. It develops into medium-sized loosely formed heads and soft, buttery-textured green leaves. This kind has a strong heat tolerance and doesn’t get bitter in warmer climates. The small leaves mature in about 28 days, and it takes them about 50 days to reach their full size. Butterhead ‘all year round’ Lettuce seeds grow well in chilly climates.

Additionally, cultivate Butterhead ‘all year round’ Lettuce seeds with onions, cucumbers, or carrots for the benefits of companion planting.

Temperatures that cause dormancy, plant etiolation, and early bolting without head formation have an impact on lettuce. So selecting a quality type of lettuce assures that it may be grown all year round, especially in hot and humid tropical regions. The likelihood that a crop will succeed is increased when lettuce is irrigated during the dry season.

Suitable Soil for Lettuce Cultivation

  • Firstly, well-drained soil with good water retention capacity.
  • Secondly, non-acidic soils.
  • Also, soils rich in organic manure.

Water Requirement for Lettuce

Lettuce watering should be light, frequent, and consistent. The goal is to simply keep the soil moist. Avoid watering too often. This is because overwatering leads to root rot, disease, and stunted growth.

Steps on Growing Butterhead ‘all year round’ Lettuce

Direct sow the seed in rich soil and full sun, spreading them as thinly as possible in rows 1-2′ apart; when the seedlings begin to grow, thin them to a distance of 6-8″.
Since lettuce has very shallow roots, it needs adequate moisture in order to stay tender and sweet; keep the soil evenly moist. Applying mulch helps conserve moisture and control weeds. Butterhead ‘all year round’ Lettuce is quite heat resistant. Aim for a soil with ample drainage and lots of organic matter. Also, regular watering is essential to prevent leaves from developing a bitter taste.

Ideal pH: 6.0-6.5.

Harvesting:

Harvest the leaves when they look mature enough to eat. Cut the whole plant from the ground a few weeks after it is mature. If you leave it in, the lettuce will eventually go bad.

  • Harvest leaves in the morning. Harvest them early because they retain a crispiness gained overnight. Lettuce starts to “bolt” in hot conditions toward the end of the growing season. It begins producing seeds and acquires a bitter taste. You can keep this from happening by pinching off the center of the plant. If a lettuce plant does end up bolting, go ahead and pull it up.
Storage:

Store harvested lettuce in the refrigerator.
