Beautiful & Tasty!
by Ann George
This is one of the most beautiful lettuces I have ever seen. It is refreshing to look at. It is easy to grow, to cut & come again, and I like the flavor. It also seems to handle Florida heat well. I am really glad to have "discovered" this. Thanks Seed Savers.
The only oak leaf I grow
Amazing color, size and flavor, this tops my list for oak leaved lettuces. Plant no less than 8 inches apart then get ready to cut and come again all season long.
Heat, drought and cold tolerant, good tasting...
I have been growing this since the 80s. First in No Cal, then in Hawaii for a few decades and now on Cape Cod. Over the years of letting it go to seed I have bred for heat and drought tolerance and lately cold tolerance also. The last 2 years I sowed seed in September, came back in April to beautiful plants that survived 20 degree New England winter.Best ever!!
Delicious, and held well in heat
I planted this lettuce in the fall, it wintered over nicely (in Virginia), establishing good roots, and came to life in the spring. Of all the varieties I planted, it held the best as the weather heated up. It never got bitter and I didn't lose any of it to bolting.
