Looseleaf Lettuce

Two Star Lettuce

Two Star Lettuce


45 days. We thought this variety should really be called 'Five Star', because that's what it earned at our trial grounds. Thick, succulent, crisp leaves styled with extra frilliness like an endive, yet on a relaxed, loose-leaf frame. Large plants stand approximately 6-7 inches tall, a full 12 inches wide with luscious, 6-7 inch wide, outstretched leaves. Outstanding uniformity. A vibrant chartreuse color and delicious, non-bitter flavor make this wavy-leafed variety a winner from garden to salad bowl.

Lactuca sativa

Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.

• Lettuce performs best in cool weather, 60-70°F, and grows in a wide range of soil types
• Plant as early as soil can be worked
• For extended harvest, plant every 2-3 weeks and choose heat tolerant varieties for summer
• Lettuce seed can be sown every month from February—October
• A cold frame and cold-hardy varieties can stretch the spring and fall growing season into the winter months
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 10 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• 1 gram of seed will sow 30 row feet
• Consistent, even watering is critical for best results

Direct Sowing
• Use row cover to improve germination and prevent soil crusting
• As soon as 2-3 true leaves have formed, thin loose-leaf types to 10-14 inches apart; icebergs, butterheads, and romaines to 12-16 inches apart

• Start indoors 4-6 weeks before anticipated transplant date

Insects & Diseases
Common pests: Aphids and slugs
Pest control: Strong spray of water for aphids or applications of Pyrethrin or Neem oil, baits, traps, or Cabbage Collars for slugs

Harvest & Storage
• While picking individual leaves helps extend the season somewhat, all eventually become bitter as they begin to bolt

What is pelleted seed?
Seed that has been coated with a clay-based material to form a larger, round shape. This makes planting by hand or mechanical seeder easier and allows for more controlled sowing of small seeds such as carrots or lettuce. All pelleted seed has a National Organic Program (NOP) approved coating.

My experience has been exactly what the description says. This is an excellent head of very tasty and easy to grow lettuce. I grow for a few neighbors and they all comment on the sweetness, texture, and color. I understand why they might want to call it Five Star, but you could also call it All Star.
