What are the pros? Tasty, hearty, tender
What are the cons? Can be tricky to start
Starting by seed is a bit tricky to make sure the tender sprouts don't ruin when they come up, but I guess lettuce can be finicky like that. Once it gets going, it takes off like crazy and stands up to weather well. Grows a loose head that is tender but very flavorful. It grows about the same as the oak leaf lettuce also offered here. The splotches are interesting but ended brown instead of red. Taste is similar to red leaf lettuce and is fantastic for salads or as a sandwich lettuc. Bolts about as easy as oak leaf. Probably the most delicious lettuce I've ever tasted.
