We have been growing Nevada summer crisp lettuce for years now, and it reliably produces tasty, crisp heads of bright green lettuce in both cool seasons (spring and fall), and into the hot days of summer (Zone 7a). Successive plantings will keep you supplied with lettuce all summer long to enjoy with those vine-ripened tomatoes and cukes. In very hot weather, we try to place it where it will get some shade from the afternoon sun (e.g. on the north side of tomatoes). Can be direct seeded, but I prefer to start indoors and then transplant to the garden once the seedlings are established. Few pests, other than the occasional slug. All in all, a delicious and tough little lettuce for hot climates. Pair it with "Magenta" (formerly "Sierra") for a red counterpart.

Crisp and delicious heads. This one stood well in the July heat. I'm growing it again this year and other Batavia varieties as well.

This is now my favorite type of lettuce.
