55 days. Rather loose heads are petite, 6-8 inches in diameter, Bibb or Butterhead type. This variety is documented to have been grown at Monticello by Thos. Jefferson, who noted: “it does not require so much care and attention” as other types. We offer the correct, black-seeded original strain. Listed in the Slow Foods Ark of Taste, and beloved by many about a century ago.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, drought tolerant

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was my first year growing this, it sounded like fun. This stuff was ridiculously prolific. I should have given it more space than the package called for. I couldn't pick it fast enough. When it does eventually Bolt(I let it for seed collection) it produces huge amounts of seeds.

What are the pros? compact plant,tender and sweet

What are the cons? none

Review:

This lettuce is tender and sweet with no sign of bitterness. After 3 weeks of cold rain here in the northeast it is thriving. It's a perfect plant for someone gardening in containers or small spaces or even in shaded areas. The leaves are a perfect size for wrapping around chicken or egg salad instead of bread. It's a beautiful lettuce. I'll be planting lots more of this!
