easy crop
Reviewed By: Allison (Havertown, PA)
A first time gardener, I grew many, many of these lettuce plants from seed with a lot of success. They took off once I planted in a raised bed garden. Some of them grew 3 feet high and just kept producing tender leaves. We had salads for a month. I will be planting this next year.

Wonderful Lettuce
Reviewed By: Shannah (Nashville, Michigan)
I have grown this lettuce for several years. It always produces a wonderful, plentiful crop. It is not a bitter lettuce. Makes great salads.
