The fastest spring growth
of any lettuce we have ever grown.
Perfect "scoops" for dip. Big, healthy, deep-green leaves catch spring sunlight and make it into salad!
Like a romaine leaf, but faster, greener, and non-heading. For spring mix, we suggest combining this with Black-Seeded Simpson and Bronze Arrow lettuces, and the greens Mizuna and Miner's Lettuce, plus Arugula and Chervil herb.
