Southern Exposure, offers this description: "54 days. Beautiful, light yellow-green leaves grow rapidly to form large crinkled leaves on plants, 12 to 16" in diameter. 'Australian Yellow' produces large yields in a short time. Bolt resistance is moderate. Tender texture with slightly sweet, good flavor. Highly recommended spring lettuce."
