Great Lettuce!

This is a great variety if you love crisp leaf types. The 5 gram packet will last you a long time.

Very popular at market

I grow organic and sell retail and this is one of my most popular lettuces. It is so beautiful and obviously crisp that those who don't know it immediately ask about it and those who have bought it return for more. It does even better when paired on a sales table with something dark red and soft like Merlot or pair it with a butterhead. And ... drum roll ... it is my wife's favorite by far. It also is a great three season lettuce. Does super well in the Spring and into late Fall and does quite well in the Summer when I give it a lot of water once it gets some size and cover with floating row cover for some heat protection. It holds fairly well at maturity. I always grow it.
