What are the pros? not bitter, doesn't bolt
What are the cons? none
I received this lettuce as a free gift. I planted this variety with another romaine type lettuce called "little gem". This red romaine one was far superior in flavor! It kept its sweetness throughout the summer (it did become more zesty when we forgot to water or the temps went up for a few days in a row, but still good!), whereas the green little gem was more bitter. This lettuce was the first lettuce I've grown that didn't bolt right away. In fact it's now August in zone 5 and it still is growing in compact bunches! All other lettuce I've tried is usually bolted, bitter and inedible by now! Since it is a romaine type, it is also much easier to harvest than most leaf types, as you can just cut along the base of the stem and it stays in its bunch. Another plus, is that my chickens left it alone! They ended up eating all the green lettuce, and left the best (this variety) behind!
