What are the pros? Taste, Heat Resistance
What are the cons? None
A great little lettuce to grow in South Florida. I began planting cimmaron seeds in October and am just now harvesting the last batch (succession planting) in mid May. It is sweet, crunchy, and fast growing. It does best in the cooler months where it matures in ~45-50 days and has the best taste and texture, but it also does well when the temps reach the 80s. For the past 2 months it has been averaging in the low to mid 80s with little rain, yet this little lettuce has continued to flourish (while others are stunted by the heat or bolt). The last 2 weeks the temps have risen to the high 80s with a couple 90 degree days and the cimmaron is just now starting to bolt, some have still not bolted and a few of the volunteer plants that I have (I let one lettuce go to seed) are still getting bigger and haven't been stunted by the hot weather. Overall, I highly recommend cimmaron lettuce to anyone who is looking for a sweet and crunchy pop of color in their summer salads.

What are the pros? looks good in the picture
What are the cons? did not grow well for me
I give it a bad rating ONLY for my application. I tried it in an aquaponic raft bed. I did not try it in the soil garden.
sure looks great in the picture though.

What are the pros? Looks; Taste; Easy to Grow
My Cimmaron Lettuce seeds started and grew to maturity indoors in a winter garden that I keep. Germination was a breeze and it even handled a transplant to a larger pot with no issues. The leaves on this are very unique adding appeal to any salad. The taste is pleasant as well. I've had no issues picking individual leaves to eat, allowing the plant to continue to supply for weeks on end. I have not had this bolt on me yet, however its only been growing for a few months. Can't wait to grow this outdoors this spring/summer.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific
Seed grew from last year ALL OVER the back yard. I transplanted it into my rasied beds and now it is going to seed again. Apparently won't germinate in our compost but in clay in yard. Hope to have more next year. Tasty, lasts well. No "wasted" leaf space like in oakleaf varieties.

What are the pros? long season
What are the cons? nothing
Grew Spring 2013 and did very well. Held up to beating rainfall better than other varieties. Ours never turned as purple as shown in photos and is just now bolting in late June!
