50 days. Medium-green, triangular leaves are perfect for baby salad greens. It forms loose upright heads and is slow to bolt. A popular variety with many heirloom growers. The old favorite of the Amish.

What are the pros? Bolt resistant, hail resistant

What are the cons? 0

Review:

I grew these both in a greenhouse and outside. Outside the leaves resist damage from hail, do not bolt quickly and do not go bitter too quickly when the weather doesn't make sense... In the greenhouse I grew them for the young leaves. The plants kept producing, very bolt resistant, 'forget-to-water' resistant and does not go bitter quick.

Review:

Planted these seeds October 2014, we've had TONS of lettuce ever since (now March 2015). This is a semi-delicate green, I usually place in a pot of water and rinse a couple of times- the less you handle the better. Mild flavor excellent for salads. Trim 1" above ground, don't remove root and will keep producing. No pest issues.

What are the pros? Incredibly productive

What are the cons? No Dislikes

Review:

One of my favorite lettuces I've tried. Beautiful leaves with a very nice flavor and texture. The most productive lettuce i've grown with successive cuttings often occuring a week or so apart. I'm on my third cutting currently! A must have for the garden. Also very compact so if you're limited in space this is your lettuce.

What are the pros? Quick Germination Rate

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew mine in containers. I would recommend deep pots and individual plantings for a headier crispier lettuce. It you want more delicate greens grow them 3" apart in a more shallow oblong container. I was surprised that depending on the container it was a completely different lettuce! I added baby greens to salads, and used the headier individual planting for burgers and sandwiches to add crunch. Great sweet fresh taste, no bitterness. Perfect and diverse. *Speed germination by pre-soaking (I got mine wet on accident and they germinate fast!! Haha)

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Pests

Review:

I have grown this lettuce for three seasons by direct seeding outdoors. Excellent germination rate and very prolific. Like most loose leaf lettuce, it doesn't like high temperatures and will bolt in mid summer. The only downside is that the local deer like it as much as I do, which is why I will be purchasing more seed to do a replant for a fall harvest.
