Skyphos Red Butterhead Lettuce
Skyphos red butterhead lettuce is one of our absolute favorite lettuces to grow and to eat! The large heads are bright green towards the center and a reddish purple hue towards the tips. The centers of these tender heads develop a buttery and silky smooth texture perfect for lettuce wraps or cobb salads. Heat tolerant and widely adapted.
Will grow in a wide range of soil types but prefers a slightly acidic loamy soil with high fertility. pH 6.2 to 6.5
Can be transplanted in early spring or directly sown into the garden a couple weeks before the last frost. May be grown all summer in cooler summer regions. Plant heat tolerant varieties for summer production.
