best lettuce ever.

This lettuce is great. Crunch, delicious, grows well in all seasons, even dead of summer with consecutive 80 degree days. Only lettuce that never bolted out of 2 dozen varieties we grew. Great for salad mix too, we got up to 4 cuttings off it, and the leaves are great at all sizes. Grows faster then most lettuces. The one issue is it pretty much won't germinate above 72 degees. Other then that, this lettuce is perfect.

Versatile and Easy to Grow

Grew in heat and cold, when other lettuces bolted or withered. Wonderful, very slightly bitter taste is great on it's own, with perhaps a lemon vinaigrette, or as an addition to a mixed-greens salad. Heavier texture gives a substantial loft.
