Samara Lettuce


This Russian Heirloom lettuce has been said to originate from the Volga River in the town of Samara.  A delicious well rounded head of lettuce, the leaves are green with pink hues.  The lettuce seems to be able to tolerate a little bit of heat and takes a little bit longer to bolt than other varieties of lettuce we have had in the garden.

Lettuce is cool-season crop that grows well in the spring and fall in most regions. Lettuce seedlings will even tolerate a light frost. Temperatures between 45°F and 65°F are ideal. (Source: almanac)

Because lettuce grows quickly, the best approach is to plant a small amount at a time, staggering your plantings.
