Lettuce varieties from Hawaii: Manoa and Anuenue

- Manoa lettuce. Green mignonette, commonly referred to as Manoa lettuce, is a local favorite in Hawaii. The University of Hawai'i College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources selected a variety named UH Manoa. This variety is desired for its semi head, buttery flavor and tolerance to heat, bolting and tip burn.

- Anuenue lettuce is another local favorite that can be grown at low elevations. Anuenue has smooth leaves and under the right conditions can produce larger heads than the UH Manoa variety.

Both UH Manoa and anuenue can be grown year round in Hawai'i, and the seeds are available at the UH Agricultural Diagnostic Service Center.

True head lettuce and romaine prefer cool climates and grow best at higher elevations.

UH Manoa and anuenue lettuce matures in 45 to 60 days, while true head lettuce and romaine varieties take 65 to 85 days.
