Optima Butterhead Lettuce


Packet (~300 seeds)


We adore Optima for its velvety texture and exceptional buttery flavor. Deep, lime-green color, large heads and thick leaves that don’t crack when handled. This variety helped bankroll the farm in its early years, as we couldn’t seem grow enough of it for the local farmers market and grocery stores. Mildew resistant and slow to bolt, making it an excellent choice for both spring and summer.
