60 days. This heat-tolerant butterhead type has been lovingly preserved by descendants of Civil War veteran Grandpa George Admire, born in 1822. Forms large plants with large, loose heads; deeply crinkled leaves are gracefully splashed with bronze and are of very fine flavor! Originally a Seed Savers Exchange accession, donated to them in the 1970's by Chloe Lowry.

What are the pros? easy to grow, delicious

What are the cons? will bolt suddenly

Review:

This is a lovely butterhead. We direct sow in early April and they come up with ease. They grow into lovely heads. Sometimes we cut a few leaves, sometimes we take the whole head. No problems with slugs or other pests. They withstand the heat pretty well, but once the 80's hit, this will bolt suddenly. We let it, and it re-seeds itself the following year. Fall planting does not go as well though. They just can't get started in the heat, and winter comes on too fast here. In terms of food quality, the leaves do not tear too easily, as is common with some butterheads. They are still delicate though and sweet. They stand up well in salads, sandwiches, and as a base for a chicken salad and such. My husband, who isn't much of a salad eater, insists we grow this one every year. So, this is year three. We have grown maybe 20-some different lettuces over the past four years. This is one of only two lettuces that we never rule out - the other is a black seeded Trocadero.

What are the pros? super easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

planted in November in Florida, only took about a month til i could start pulling early leaves, produced beautifully all through winter and spring, and everyone who ate it loved it and wanted more. It didn't bolt until April after I couldn't get outside to harvest because of a week straight of storms. Probably could have postponed bolting even longer. Harvesting the seed now, they're self-pollinating so it's fast and easy and predictable---produces heaps and heaps of seed. Definitely a winner, highly highly recommend.

What are the pros? good keeper-last all season

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was the easiest lettuce I have ever grown. It stays tender throughout the garden season. It stays crisp in the refrigerator and it is gorgeous. The pale green leaves have a blush of drk pink that is darker depending how much sun it gets. Great taste, pretty in salads and easy to grow.
