Lettuce, Gustav's Salad

100% of 100

Our favorite butterhead type. A highly refined, gourmet butterhead with a downhome back history. This compact, silky soft lettuce is excellent in so many dishes. A butterhead better than any we have tried, this is a new staple in the salad garden or on your farm, reliable and next level eating quality. This heirloom was grown by a local man in the Dutch isles. He was known to deliver his signature lettuce variety in the basket of his bicycle, and he offered it in his small town for over 40 years. We are grateful that this man always allowed a small portion of the lettuce patch to go to seed so he could preserve the variety.
