Item Details

Flavorful, green leaves have a light-red blush, form a loose head, and taste not the least bit bitter, making them perfect for salads and wraps. Strong, sturdy plants reached 6-7" tall and 10-12" wide when grown at Seed Savers Exchange’s Heritage Farm. SSE acquired this heirloom lettuce in 2014 from Mary Daniels of Missouri, who received the variety about 1957 from her parents, Daniel and Elizabeth Crader. Family lore suggests the family has grown it since Mary’s great-great-great-grandmother, Margaret Greter (surname later became “Crader”) brought seeds to the United States from Germany in 1979. Organic.
