This is an excellent variety that forms a solid head with a crunchy texture. The crisp heads are made up of light green to white inner leaves with a mild flavor. The outer leaves are medium green and crinkled. For best flavor and development of firm heads, time crops to mature during cool weather. Heirloom variety.
Culture: Head lettuce is best handled as transplant. Sow indoors in early spring and shift to garden in mid-spring. Sow again in late summer for fall crop. If directly sowing, cover 1/4" (6 mm.). Water regularly and fertilize when 3" (7.5 cm) tall. Provide light shade for summer sowing.
Harvest: Cut entire head when firm. Don't wait for outer leaves to change color.
Nutrition: Rich in fiber and potassium, with moderate amount of vitamin A.
