Bibb Lettuce is one of the most popular butterhead varieties to grow for its crisp texture, sweet clear flavor without any bitterness, compact 5" to 6" inch rosette head, and attractive bright green leaves. A staple for fresh market growers and home gardeners around the world due to its excellent climate adaptability while maintaining a rapid growth habit. A long loved favorite bred by Lt. John B. Bibb who served in the War of 1812 and went on to serve in both the Kentucky House of Representatives and Senate, Lt. Bibb was an avid horticulturist and we can thank him for the gift of this cherished legacy lettuce. 60 days. Packet: approx. 500 seeds.
