You will not be disappointed with Pirat. Soft, buttery hearts are surrounded by elegant burgundy tipped leaves. Resistance to downy mildew and bacterial rot make this butterhead a great choice for the northeast climate. The thinnings make a great baby lettuce, but be sure to let Pirat grow to full size for the optimum lettuce experience.

How to Grow

Sow indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning about 4 weeks before last frost. Harvest late spring and summer sowings promptly to beat bolting. Continue sowing until about 2 weeks before first fall frost. Lettuce likes steady (but not excessive) moisture and can become prematurely bitter during dry spells; keep irrigated for best-tasting leaves.
