Re: QUESTION: Heat-resistant lettuce variety for Texas

Hi, I live in Culebra, Puero Rico were the weather is always warm (between 75-98 degrees) during the day and about 15 degrees lower at night. My experience with the following varieties is very good.
Rocket Arugula ( great when mix with the other varieties, and wonderful for Pesto)
Buttercrunch Lettuce
Avon Hybrid Spinach
Green Ice, Letuce
I have the top of the garden area cover with a 60% saran and I have to water the plants twice a day as summer approach.
Good Luck
Watermelons are very sweet.
