Non-GMO Bronze Guard Leaf Lettuce (Lactuca sativa ‘Bronze Guard’), is a type of leaf lettuce, favored for its beautiful color, it’s often used as a garnish. With a bitter, but still flavorful taste, it’s great in salads. The leaves are curled, with a light red color contrasting the green. It is very juicy for lettuce.

Bronze Guard lettuce will grow in almost any zone. It can be a winter crop in milder zones. It prefers full sun, but over heating can lead to tip burn and splitting. Harvest before the leaves get too large, for optimum flavor.

Lettuce can have staggered planting for a continuous crop. The outer leaves can be picked before the inner leaves, and lettuce will keep growing, which allows for an extended harvest.

Sowing: It’s recommended that you direct sow your seeds outdoors. Plant as soon as soil can be worked. If starting indoors, start seeds in trays 3 weeks before transplanting outside. Seeds need light to germinate, so do not cover them with too much soil.

Transplanting: Harden off your lettuce for 3 days before planting outside. Roots are shallow, so be careful not to disturb the beds once they are planted.

Soil Preference: Cool, loose soil. The temperature needs to be below 70 degrees for the seeds to germinate properly.

Other Tips: Keep soil moist, but not soggy. Lettuce needs direct sun, but over heating can cause it to wilt, or prematurely bolt.

When harvesting, use scissors to cut what you need, and you will get growth for a few more weeks. Use leaves before they get too big, as they tend to get bitter the bigger they are.
