(Lactuca sativa) Lettuce has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Caucasus and western Asia and was popular with the Romans. Lettuce is easy to grow but dislikes hot weather which can lead to bitterness and bolting. Sowing and growing lettuce may be done in any season but performs best as a cool season crop and best growth is produced at about 16-18C. For hot summer areas provide semi shade for better yields. Germination is best at 20C and below. High temperatures can inhibit sprouting.
