( Salinas Lettuce )
|'Salinas' is a crisphead lettuce, generally ready for harvest 70 days after sowing. Well-adapted to maritime Northwest conditions, resisting bolting and tipburn, heat, and chill. Flattened, pale-green heads hold for several weeks at maturity, and have a mild flavor. Start from seed 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost date. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in wide rows and thin to 8 to 12 inches apart. Thinned seedlings can be replanted. Keep soil moist but not soggy. Protect from rabbits and slugs. Extend the harvest season by planting successive crops. Summer heat causes lettuce to bolt. Pick outer leaves as they grow or harvest all at once. Harvesting when weather or day temperature is cooler will result in crisper leaves. Do not harvest lettuces until you are ready to use it.
Important Info : Resistant to tip-burn, heat and chill.
