Buttercrunch Lettuce

Buttercrunch is a Bibb type whose prized shape and buttery, chewy leaves have become a favorite for salads.

Buttercrunch Lettuce

  • Light: Full sun to part shade
  • Head size: 6 to 8 inches (semi-heading)
  • Matures: 21 days for leaves, 55 for head
  • Plant spacing: 8 to 10 inches apart

Developed by Cornell University, this heat-tolerant, Bibb-type lettuce has quickly become a favorite since earning All America status in 1963. Its rich green leaves, sometimes tinged with red, form a beautiful rosette in the garden that holds well under stress and has good bolt resistance. A good source of vitamin A and phytonutrients. Grows best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciates it in spring in hot climates.
