When watered regularly and offered a little afternoon shade, this lettuce can be slow to bolt and provide more time for picking before turning bitter. Common Uses Parris Island Lettuce is a romaine variety that is nutrient dense and goes well in many dishes. Use it as a blend with your other lettuce varieties for a better flavor profile. Harvesting Crops You can gather leaves from this variety all season long if managed properly by picking leaves when they are an appropriate length. If you wish to harvest the entire plant, once mature, cut just above the surface of the soil. Lettuce will last about a week in the refrigerator. Harvesting Seed Allow a couple of lettuce plants to bolt and flower. These flowers will dry out on plant and have puffs of white cotton showing around the top (like a dandelion). Pick these flower heads and toss them in a bag. Break the flower heads apart and oval shaped seeds will fall out. Allow the seeds to dry for a couple of weeks before safely storing them for the next growing season.

Because of this, it is a good idea to plant lettuce about 1 inch apart and thin after germination. Keep soil moist during the germination period, as shallow seeds will tend to dry out, or even wash away if the soil is allowed to become too dry and later watered. Common Uses Use buttercrunch lettuce as you would any regular lettuce. Buttercrunch has a rich flavor profile and is an excellent complement to any dish. Harvesting Crops You can start harvesting your lettuce leaves at about 21 days; however you'll want to be careful not to damage the head (which will be ready in about 55 days). Harvesting Seed Allow a couple of lettuce plants to bolt and flower. These flowers will dry out on plant and have puffs of white cotton showing around the top (like a dandelion). Pick these flower heads and toss them in a bag. Break the flower heads apart and oval shaped seeds will fall out.
