Grows back very quickly after cutting.
Simply doesn't bolt, ever
This lettuce is remarkable. I've grown it for two years in high-desert Colorado and found, to my surprise and delight, that it just doesn't bolt. Ever. Even in weeks of 90+F heat. This is the only lettuce I'll be turning to for my high-stress garden in this state.
