What are the pros? Hardy, great flavor,
What are the cons? Some diseases
This is a great early butter head type lettuce and winters over easily. On the smallish side the heads are about right for one large serving or two child size servings when allowed to show their potential. I often impatiently cut it like leaf lettuce and my children eat it in the garden leaf by leaf. The flavor is buttery soft and sweet. Two winters unprotected have proven it's hardiness to me. Once the weather warms up it seems that the outer leaves get spots and start to rot if the weather is wet. But I continue to use it as my most cold tolerant winter lettuce. Landis is my maiden name I bought this for that at first and was blessed to find a good hardy lettuce. I will be saving this and passing seed to my family and friends.
