I have started to collect rare lettuce varieties. I was very glad that Grow Italian carried this variety as it can be very difficult to locate. This strain is true to type.

I planted the seeds in November and we have had delicious,delicate salad greens all of December and now into January. I am harvesting them as I would a cut and come again green and they just keep coming! My husband loves a delicate salad green, but I mix mine with arugula (which does well all year long in Phoenix) for a bit of spice. I have just planted more seeds and will let folks know how far into the spring they will make it in our warm climate.

We grow this lettuce in Spring, Summer, and Fall. It is one of the hardiest varieties in this coastal climate (zone 9a) of Oregon. It is slow to bolt, does not get bitter, and has a very high germination rate.
