True to its name, this beautiful and delicious crisphead variety tolerates heat and resists bolting. Plants measure 7-8.3" long and 14.5-17" wide and produce a solid, round head. Large, silvery-green leaves are highly toothed and measure from 7.8-10.2" long and 8.2-12.2" wide. Its very sweet, incredibly crisp, and extremely juicy leaves earned this variety high marks when it was evaluated at Seed Savers Exchange in 2015. Bred by Dr. James Baggett at Oregon State University in the late 1980s for areas where lettuce can be grown throughout the summer, this variety was donated to SSE in the 1990s by member Mary Schultz of Monroe, Washington. 80 days.
