Grandpa Admire's Lettuce

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? 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.

What are the pros? Taste, early maturity

Review:

We tried a few other lettuces this season, and none did as well as this one. I don't know it it was us or the varieties we tried, but this one has turned out the best. The taste is mild and buttery, but not tasteless like your typical iceberg. I've sowed it again in shady paces for late spring/early summer, we'll see how it copes with the temperatures. My only real issues was Grasshoppers eating holes in it.
