Product Description

With a mild, sweet, buttery flavor that's never bitter, Buttercrunch has a larger, more compact yellow-white heart than other bibb types. Its dark green, reddish-tinged leaves form 4.5" rosettes of thick, blistered leaves that are bolt resistant (so they won't produce nutrient-diverting flowering stems) and free from Mosaic Virus. Take the guesswork out of planting them with our Buttercrunch seed tape! The seeds are encased in biodegradable paper that protects them during germination and dissolves in the course of watering. Simply cut the tape to the desired length, place in the garden or in one of our Grow Tub® containers and water as usual, with no worries about over- or under-seeding! 65 days to maturity.
