Buttercrunch Lettuce

65 days. Classic butterhead type was the standard for many years. Soft, buttery-textured leaves enclose a crisp, juicy, loose inner head of blanched, sweet-tasting leaves. Very heat-tolerant and slow to bolt, Buttercrunch stays mild long after others have turned bitter. Developed by George Raleigh, Cornell University, and an All America Selection for 1963.

Review:

I share garden space and grew this lettuce as a winter crop. I harvested the outer leaves when I needed lettuce, and Buttercrunch was so plentiful that I invited others in the garden to take some as they needed. This was definitely the favorite. It remained sweet until it bolted once we had several ninety degree days in a row. It stood up to light frost.

What are the pros? Fast growing and delicious

Review:

I'm really impressed with this lettuce. Unfortunately the first planting was in a raised bed with poor quality planting mix that few plants did well in. Despite this, the ones that held on are now large and growing rapidly. They are a beautiful deep green with large and abundant leaves. In a salad they are crisp and full of flavor, and very little bitterness. Heirloom organic lettuce like this would go for a high price at the farmer's market, but it's so easy to grow your own with these seeds. My daughter started a small pot with some of this lettuce and it has grown like a monster in the better soil. I've got plenty of seeds left and look forward to many delicious and nutritious gourmet quality salads in the near future.

Review:

I am growing several Baker Creek varieties this year and all have been fantastic. This little beauty is very tender and delicate, the type of lettuce you want on your tea sandwiches. It is not out first pick for our salads, but we have so many good choices, but we definitely like it for more delicate applications. Will have a spot in our garden every year.

Review:

This is great lettuce! I had no problem with pests or diseases, it grows fast, and is very mild, sweet, and tasty, and tender. The rabbits didn't even bother it. I will be growing this again next year.

What are the pros? Rich taste, stays crisp!

What are the cons? None

Review:

We planted these with Baker Creek's Crimson Giant Radishes, and were thrilled with the salads these two gave us. This Buttercrunch stayed crisp as can be, and we ate it's first leaves right up until we finally harvested the heads, way into hot summer. We've never had lettuce perform so well, and now, for "head" lettuces, we only plant Buttercrunch. This lettuce is crazily slow to bolt even in 100 plus degrees, and the rich taste puts so many other lettuces to shame. It's tender enough for sandwiches, a bright rich green color with robust taste in salads, and beautiful as a liner for plates holding finger foods. An all around, United States of America lettuce!
