BOTANICAL NAME: Lactuca sativa
DESCRIPTION: New favorite with us for fast growth in cool spring conditions, with great flavor and texture. Shiny bright-green leaves are long and deep-green like a romaine, with great butter-head flavor but easy to grow and harvest like a leaf lettuce. This great new lettuce is an Oregon original--selected at Lupine Knoll Farm from seed mixes bred by Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seeds. Thanks to farmer Jonathan Spero for this great new heirloom-to-be.
