As you might know lettuces love cool weather. These are the varieties I’m going to start in my Spring veggie garden. I’ve chosen them because they are known to be more heat resistant than most lettuces. Heat Tolerant Lettuces-
- Simpson Black Seed
- Merveille de Quatre
- White Boston
- Oak Leaf
In the past I have had a terrible time growing Romaine because it turns bitter and bolts so fast in the hot Florida sun . I won’t be planting it again. I love Buttercrunch lettuce!! It seems to stay sweet longer and I enjoy it’s velvet texture.
If you have lettuces or mesculin that you’ve loved growing & eating tell me about it!
