A hardy, winter lettuce with a unique texture, Winter Density is an older English variety that is perfect for over-wintering and early spring gardens. Super easy to grow, with an excellent flavour and a texture that runs somewhere between a butterhead and a romaine, Winter Density is an ideal choice for beginning and expert gardeners alike.



[65 days] If you’re looking for an excellent lettuce to over winter, look no further. Winter Density is excellent for our British climes and needs next to no maintenance. Its compact, dark green heads average about 16cm tall and are both heat and cold tolerant (though they need cooler temperatures to germinate).

The texture is best described as a Buttercrunch—somewhere between a bibb and a romaine style of lettuce—and it retains its flavour throughout the season. Its compact heads work well in densely planted gardens and it’s not subject to many pests or diseases. Very tasty in salads and sandwiches.
