This variety was developed by the legendary Alan Chadwick, the English leader of the organic movement in the early 1970's. Green, loose-leaf heads are tinged in bright red. They are quite compact and perfect for small gardens. We are delighted to offer an historical lettuce that is also quite tasty.

I live in Oklahoma City and am a beginner gardener. In an OKC winter we have temperatures ranging from 78F to -10F with ice, snow, then summer like weather. I planted these seeds in the garden in September, they grew fast. When the winter came I was not able to protect them as I had read that I should because of shoulder surgery. I thought all was lost on the winter garden but they froze, and then grew back - over and over and over. They were still growing when I put the summer garden in. I took them out because I thought that the sun here (75F-100F ) would burn the lettuce but after reading other reviews I am going to leave it in the garden this year & see what happens. Amazing!

I started growing Chadwick's Rodan 3 years ago in Kemmerer, Wyoming, at 7,000 feet elevation and extreme weather conditions. It survives to about 26 degrees fehrenheit, which means I have fresh lettuce until almost Thanksgiving, when we usually get a hard freeze. I let it go to seed the first year and I haven't reseeded since. If you let it go to seed, it will start growing in the springtime under the snow with the spinach. This year I collected enough seed for five acres! It grows easily; I even have lettuce growing in the cracks of the sidewalk. There's plenty for everyone; I let the deer, moose, and rabbits have what they want in the front yard (the back yard is for me!).
