What are the pros? Rich taste, stays crisp!
What are the cons? None
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!
