Lettuce ‘Black Seeded Simpson’

Lactuca sativa


A classic home garden lettuce with light green ruffled leaves.




An heirloom from the late 1800s prized for its abundance of light green, juicy, ruffled leaves.  The loosely packed heads are quick to mature meaning you can harvest early in the season. The flavor is mild and buttery and is perfect for fresh salads either as baby greens or grown to mature heads. Good heat and disease resistance.

Lettuce prefers moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Lettuce performs best if planted in the spring or fall seasons and is protected from direct afternoon sun.
