John Jeavons says that Lettuce 'Bronze Arrow' is "one of the best lettuces in the world." I think so, too. This heirloom lettuce from California has arrow-shaped leaves of bronze-red and green with a delicious, mild flavor.
Bronze Arrow lettuce does well in all sorts of weather, and it's slow to bolt.
Sowing Lettuce 'Bronze Arrow' Seeds:
Sow outdoors in early spring, as soon as the ground can be worked. Sow on the surface in shallow furrows, or cover lightly with sand. Thin to 8" apart. Full sun to part shade.
