(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? pretty, good texture

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was a very nice lettuce. I don't know about cold hardiness because we only get down to about 20F usually. Compared to other lettuces I was growing, slightly slower to bolt. Forms nice heads. Hardy but tender.

Hardy ButterHead Lettuce
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Hardy, great flavor,

What are the cons? Some diseases

Review:

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.

What are the pros? Over winters

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I planted this in the cold frame to see if it would survive and I gave up when we got below freezing for weeks at a time and some of it was below zero into the minuses. I was so shocked to see this lettuce spring back up after looking like it was almost dead. This winter I am going to give it some straw or a freeze cloth inside the cold frame. EXCELLENT winter lettuce.

Best To Overwinter
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

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!

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!!
