Lettuce Seeds - Key Lime


Lactuca sativa

HEIRLOOM – How can you resist such a delicious sounding name? We admit that’s what attracted us initially when we first read about this lettuce, but growing it was a true pleasure! A large, butterhead type with bright, lime green heads and a buttery, sweet crunch. While it does have (key) lime green leaves, it actually gets its name from its original grower. The seeds come from an elderly Texas seed saver who has been growing it all his life. His seed came from his father, who grew up in southern Florida, thus the name "Key Lime".
This is a very slow to bolt variety, making it an excellent choice for the South, though it’s reportedly done well in all parts of the US. Shows very good resistant to most lettuce diseases. We are excited to offer this variety, and think you’ll find it a real winner in your gardens.
