The fall slot for lettuce is challenging, as the lettuce has to handle both the heat of the summer and the cold of the fall with all the moisture and temperature variability that is characteristic this time of year. This year, 10 growers from across Ontario – many who participated in last year’s trial – will trial five varieties and six types of seed of leaf lettuce in a randomized and replicated trial over their last two planting dates of the season.
