Love this lettuce
Reviewed By: Corki Willyard (Litchfield Park, AZ)
I don't wait for this lettuce to head. I grow it like leaf lettuce but instead of thin and limp it is crisp. My husband doesn't like leaf lettuce but likes this lettuce.

Ithaca Head Lettuce
Reviewed By: Derick Coots (New Bloomfield, Missouri)
I purchased some of the Ithaca Head Lettuce seed early this spring. Let me be the first to say this is an outstanding variety! I started some plants in my greenhouse this spring and I have harvested several heads of this lettuce...they were big and firm, and tasted very good. I highly recommend this head lettuce variety to anyone wanting to grow head lettuce.
