Product Description

Tropicana has the best heat and bolt tolerance (meaning it won't prematurely produce flowering stems, taking nutrients away from the lettuce) of any green leaf-type lettuce. Its ruffled, bright green leaves are perfect for tearing to make salads or layering on sandwiches. Plant in moist, well-drained soil in full sunlight for best results. Tropicana is tolerant to Leaf Scorch and Tip Burn, and resistant to Corky Root. Harvest wisely! Lettuce picked at 7 in the morning will be twice as sweet as picking it after 2 in the afternoon, since the sugar content of lettuce fluctuates throughout the day. 55 days to maturity.
