Maule's Philadelphia Lettuce

Introduced in 1888 by W. Atlee Burpee under the name California Cream Butter. This large, cabbage-like salad lettuce was quickly reselected and improved by Philadelphia seedsman William Henry Maule so that by the 1890s it became commonly known as Maule’s Philadelphia Butter. Long considered the “mainstay of the Philadelphia market,” this lettuce was treated as a fall forcing lettuce and as such is ideal for cold frame and polytunnel culture. For best appearance, plant 14 inches apart. This lettuce thrives in cool weather and can be overwintered under straw.

What are the pros? good taste, nice appearance

What are the cons? 50% germination

Review:

I planted two seeds in the spring. One germinated and one didn't. The one that did produced nicely formed leaves for about two months until summer really kicked in. I plan to plant it again in the fall.
