What are the pros? Lots of lettuce
What are the cons? Sometimes bitter
We got this lettuce as a free gift last year. We planted it in partial shade near our squash plants and got a ton of lettuce. We gave bags and bags of it to our friends, who said they liked the taste, look and texture. If eaten too soon after picking the flavor was kind of bitter, so we started rinsing it and putting it in the fridge for a day or two. It tasted great after waiting. It was also, unfortunately, the same color as squash bugs and they decided it was a nice place to hide- although they didn't eat it. So, don't plant it near your squash if you are having trouble with squash bugs.
