New Favorite Bibb Lettuce


I knew as soon as I saw the starts that I was going to love this lettuce.
Nice medium to dark green coloring. Excellent formation of lettuce that is buttery and just a little sweet. Grows quickly from seed and transplants well. Definitely a permanent addition to our garden.

Lettuce for the Sonoran Desert


Aunt Mae's Bibb grows great from September to December in my garden in Mesa, Arizona. It's sweet and delicious with a perfect texture. And it's a beautiful rich green. It's my new favorite lettuce. We'll see how it does in the winter and spring here.

Seriously the best!


This is the best lettuce I've ever grown. I'll never grow anything else.
