Item Details

This Dutch lettuce variety grows quite uniformly for an heirloom, open-pollinated variety—just one reason it earned top honors for Boston-type lettuce in the 1983 Rodale Research Center trials! The loose, light-green heads weigh about five ounces, tolerate cold and heat extremely well, resist lettuce mosaic virus and white rot, and have a distinctive buttery flavor.
