Bibb is a crisp, clean, and easy to grow butterhead lettuce. Bibb lettuce has light green leaves with the occasional red spots. The crispy heads often self blanch in the center. A lettuce variety that is perfect for farmers markets and for the home gardener. This Bibb does well in the heat, yet still grows quickly in our cool weather.
History: Lt. John B. Bibb served in the War of 1812, represented Logan County in the Kentucky House of Representatives and the state Senate from 1827 to 1834. Lt. Bibb was also an amateur horticulturist and developed the Bibb lettuce we know and love today. However, it wasn’t offered commercially until 1935.
