Anuenue Summercrisp L... VLE-4263
The only lettuce we know
that will sprout in temperatures above 85°F without special treatment.
A wonderful summer lettuce, developed in Hawaii. Does equally well for cutting when young, or as a mature head lettuce.
No worries with this one; good flavor, slow to bolt, good-looking and easy, even if you've never been able to grow head lettuce before.
Starts off slow, but when the others are bolting and wilting, it heads up. Ah-new-ee-new-ee, means "rainbow" in Hawaiian.
