History of the Plant

Anuenue (AH-new-ee-new-ee) is the lovely Hawaiian name for ‘rainbow’ and she is simply the most heat-tolerant lettuce we’ve found. And she’s delicious! A French Crisp type, Organic Anuenue Lettuce’s refreshing crunch is followed by rich mineral succulence, her innermost leaves positively buttery.

Growing Media



You can plant Anuenue lettuce seeds in spring or fall for a crop of big heads 55 to 72 days later. If it’s still chilly in March, start the plants indoors before the last frost. In fall, direct sow Anuenue lettuce seeds into the garden soil



Pick individual leaves or wait and harvest full heads. Mature summer lettuce stays in prime eating condition only a short time, so harvest promptly and keep planting. In fall and winter the plants stay in good harvest condition longer.



In optimal growing conditions at least 70% of seeds will germinate. Usual seed life: 3 years. Per 100′ row: 240 seeds head lettuce/1.2M seeds leaf type, per acre: 58M seeds head lettuce/348M leaf type.




Requires moderate levels of water: approximately 1″ per week. Keep soil evenly moist but not soggy. This is particularly important in the early stages of growth as overwatering the seeds can cause damage and decrease your germination rates.



As pole beans tend to produce their own nitrogen (as long as the proper rhizobia bacteria are in the soil), they do not generally require the addition of this nutrient. Adding a light layer of compost or nutrient mix with higher levels of potassium and phosphorous, however, can benefit your plants if added prior to planting and once again when plants have reached about 6″ in height.



The ideal lettuce growing location for spring and fall is in a spot that receives full sun. If you plan on growing lettuce during the summer or in warm planting zones, partial shade can provide protection from the heat.



How much light does Lettuce need per day: Indirect vs. Direct light. As shown in the table, most leafy greens grow well with at least 5 hours of direct light per day. This means 5+ hours of sunlight hitting the plant leaves is recommended for growing lettuce and other leafy greens.



Apply a light layer of straw, reusable black landscape fabric, or wood chips around your bean plants to keep moisture and heat in your soil and suppress weed populations.




Lettuce is high in vitamin C, potassium, and fiber and low in calories. The darker the green the more nutrients they’re likely to contain, particularly the antioxidant beta-carotene and the anti-inflammatory folic acid.



Lettuce is also said to have chemicals the help relax the body, calming nerves and muscles for a better night’s sleep.
