Classic butterhead type was the standard for many years. Soft, buttery-textured leaves enclose a crisp, juicy, loose inner head of blanched, sweet-tasting leaves. Very heat-tolerant and slow to bolt, Buttercrunch stays mild long after others have turned bitter.
"This is the best lettuce I've ever eaten, it's soft, toothsome, and has a delicate flavor that's perfect for burgers, sandwiches, salads, and anything else you can imagine. It grew really well, and no pests came near it. The heads grew large, and each one was big enough to feed 4 people in a salad."
Developed by George Raleigh, Cornell University, and an All America Selection for 1963.
