Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Grand Rapids is the best-known loose-leaf lettuce variety. This variety produces medium to large upright, light green leaves. The mild and flavorful leaves are frilled and crisp. Being an exceptionally fast grower, it is the earliest to bear. This cool-season plant is slow to bolt and can be grown later in the spring than most other varieties.


Please Note: Seed tapes require consistent moisture to ensure the best germination.

Chives, onions, and garlic can repel aphids and other pests by disguising the scent of the lettuce with their own aromatic properties. Basil is believed to enhance both the taste and development of lettuce. Radishes can serve as a useful decoy crop to attract flea beetles away from lettuce.
