The Q&A Archives: Limestone Lettuce

Question: I am looking for either seeds or a place to purchase limestone lettuce - it is supposed to have a mild lemon flavor. The produce company for purchase does not need to be local.

Answer: I'm not sure I would call the flavor lemony, but limestone lettuce is a term used for any number of lettuces: the Butterhead, Boston or Bibb types. These grow in lightly folded heads and have a soft texture. Burpee (www.burpee .com or 800-888-1447) offers seeds for a number of these.
