Credited with popularising the Grand Rapids area of Michigan, lettuce grand rapids was discovered in the late 19th century by Eugene and Jonathan Davis in their garden. The variety was evidently lauded by the growers since it thrived in cold, was slow to bolt and grew rather quickly. The bright green, frilly leaves that were resistant to tip-burns were hugely popular amongst growers and consumers. Once mature, the plant forms a bouquet of loose wavy leaves which are crispy and subtly sweet to taste. Since lettuce grand rapids thrive during colder months, you can be assured of having fresh produce all through the winter. Lettuce grand rapids are known to contain vitamin A and C. The lettuce leaves are quick to mature and get ready for harvest in about 40 to 50 days. The leaves of the lettuce can add crispy volume to salads, sandwiches and as garnishes.
Growing guide for Lettuce Grand Rapids Seeds

Planting instructions

Lettuce grand rapids thrive in cooler seasons. Sow the seeds at a depth of ¼ inches in an evenly moist soil. The ideal germination temperature for the seeds should range between 12-15 °C(55-60 °F). Once the soil temperature reaches above 23 °C(75 °F), the lettuce grand rapids seeds can become dormant. Thin the seedlings to a distance of 8-10’’ once you see growth. Lettuce grand rapids grow well with onions, carrots, beets, celery, dill, strawberries and cucumbers as companion plants. They can also be planted in between other taller plants to protect them from direct sun during peak sunlight.

Growing Requirements

pests

Aphids, cutworms, and slugs can sneak behind the lettuce grand rapid leaves and affect the foliage. Keep a close eye on the plant and remove the affected part as soon as you see it. Natural pest repellents like neem oil and canola oil can help you get rid of these unwanted guests. Also, schedule the watering of the plant to early morning in order to let the foliage dry during the day and not catch any bacterial diseases.

soil

Loose, well drained soil with ideal pH range between 6 to 6.5 is best to grow lettuce grand rapids. Prepare the soil by adding natural compost at least 2-3 weeks prior to the planting.

spot

Lettuce grand rapids will thrive in full to partial sun. Choose a spot that receives at least 5-6 hours of sunlight every day.

temperature

Lettuce grand rapids is a cool season crop and will grow well in temperatures ranging between 12-15 °C(55-60 °F).

watering

Regular water is essential to avoid bitter tasting leaves of lettuce grand rapids. Water every other day at soil level to keep adequate moisture in the soil.

how to harvest

This cut-and-come-again variety of lettuce can be harvested as and when the leaves are required. The baby leaves of lettuce grand rapids are more crispy and subtly sweet in flavour. Harvest the leaves in the morning and use generously in salads, sandwiches or in other garnishes. When stored in a paper towel in the refrigerator, the leaves can last upto 7-10 days. Once the plant starts to grow the main stem, the leaves can no longer be harvested.
