Very Productive


Great lettuce, very productive, resistant to bolting here in zone 5/6 summers, and great taste with a slight crunch
I have even started them inside under lights and have been harvesting since January and will be planting more seeds to transplant inside

The star of our lettuce garden!


After buying these seeds from SSE years ago, I have grown and saved seeds of this lettuce every year. It is a family fave. The leaves are beautiful, crisp and sweet. They are wonderful in a salad straight from the garden. Slow to bolt even in our hot summers. Highly recommend!
