Slobolt Leaf Lettuce Seeds

Slobolt Leaf Lettuce

250 Seeds

$ 3.59

(Lactuca sativa) Released in 1946 by the USDA's Agricultural Research Center in Beltsville, Maryland, "Slobolt" is an improved Grand Rapids-type lettuce that has been selected for resistance to bolting in warm temperatures.  Plants produce large clumps of crinkled, light green leaves with a pleasant mild flavor and smooth texture.  Unlike many lettuces of its type, slobolt does not become bitter as warm weather approaches.  Seeds of this selection have improved germination in warm weather, but are still best-suited for spring planting.  45-55 days to harvest.  250 seeds per packet.

CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 4-6" apart, 1/8" deep in rows 18-24" apart. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 2-14 days.  For best yield, harvest by cutting individual leaves from the plant, leaving the growing tip intact.  For continuous harvests, make successive sowings every two weeks throughout spring and fall.
