(Lactuca sativa) We acquired this dark green classic Pennsylvania Dutch winter lettuce in 1994 from the well-known lettuce collector Mary Schultz of Monroe, Washington. A Pennsylvania Dutch selection of the now-extinct late 1700s variety known as White Tennisball, this is one of the hardiest, most frost-resistant lettuces we have ever grown. It even survived the Polar Vortex during the severe winter of 2013-2014. Each head reaches 11 to 12 inches in diameter with a loose butterhead appearance. Plant 14 inches apart in early September for salad greens through December and January.

What are the pros? Perfect to overwinter

What are the cons? delicate leaves at first

Review:

this lettuce is the perfect variety to overwinter. It tolerates the cold very well. I planted late Autumn under a bed of straw and the following Spring the seedlings popped up and I was able to have lettuce a month early! It is also great for cold frames throughout the Winter as well as late summer planting for Fall. Best year round type I've ever grown and was the last plant to wilt once the frost hit hard this past year!

What are the pros? Super easy!

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

We planted this fully exposed in NC winter. We got temps down in single digits, two snow storms, and some high winds....we did NOTHING to these plants. No water, no cover, no nothing. They even grew in a patch of weedy henbit. These things are crisp, bright green, and delicious! You literally can't mess this up. Amazing little lettuce plants! Very tolerant. They did take a while to get to their full size which is not very big but that is okay, just plant a bunch! If I knew how easy these were I would have planted more. Next winter I am seed bombing my entire garden with them!!

Review:

Started this in ground here in Texas in late winter and had lettuce all through spring till it got too hot. It's going to seed now so hope to save some. It was the best of all 12 types I grew. It also lasted longer than all the other varieties. I picked it as leaf lettuce. It was mild tasting and held up beautifully once picked. Just a grand lettuce for salads. I will definitely plant this again for this coming fall and winter.
