Crisp, iceberg-like lettuce, would recommend


I grew this variety in my garden for the first time this year and was very impressed. Very resilient and very easy to grow. My wife doesn't like the flimsy lettuce varieties in the organic hard plastic mix packages they sell in the stores and would rather have a crisp iceberg lettuce. She did not complain at all about this variety. I would cut the base with a scissors and a new bunch of leaves would grow in it's place. I had access to fresh great tasting lettuce all summer long. Would recommend.
