At Johnny's, we conduct lettuce trials across multiple growing seasons, and select the most adaptable, flavorful, and attractive varieties for production in each season. We cover a wide array of market needs with summer crisp, romaine, butterhead, oakleaf, bibb, lollo, iceberg, and loose leaf types that can be harvested at baby leaf, mini or full-size head stage, as well as innovations like Salanova. In addition, we offer most of our lettuce varieties in pelleted form for ease of sowing. See our Quick Lettuce Reference Chart for a summary of characteristics.
