( Nevada Lettuce )
|'Nevada' is a French crisp/Batavia lettuce which is generally ready for harvest 75 days after sowing. This mint-green lettuce excells in a variety of climates. Resistant to bolting and tip burn, downy mildew, and lettuce mosaic virus. This variety also stores well when cooled at picking and kept on ice at the market. 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 bolting and tip burn, downy mildew, and lettuce mosaic virus.
