From Harris Moran which offers this description: "Vanmax sets the standard in fall planted lettuce. Rugged and dependable, Vanmax is still going strong. This yielder is bred for mid-autumn season in the desert areas. Ideal climatic conditions are warm, medium long days at planting moving into the cool short days of late fall at harvest time." PVP
