Boston or Butterhead… The name “butterhead” is fitting for large, ruffly outer leaves surrounding a soft, folded, and blanched heart. A.K.A Boston, this is the sort of lettuce most prized in Europe where most of our varieties were bred. Grows best in cool temperatures. Excessive heat will stop leaf growth and produce stalks that will quickly flower and turn green leaf lettuce leaves bitter.
