What are the pros? Light flavor, bolt-resistant
What are the cons? Very small
This may be my first year growing this lettuce - grew an all-red mix last year, but I can't pinpoint if this was part of it. It's an easy grower, but it does not get big, at all - no plant has produced leaves bigger than the palm of my hand, no matter how long they're left on the plant. However, it has a beautiful double-color, an exquisitely delicate, sweet flavor and the uber-frilly leaves have a lovely, crisp texture. It's a bit of a caterpillar magnet when summer rolls around, but hand-picking the 'pillars solves that easily. It's survived a good stretch of 90s-weather without bolting, as well.
