Posted here for information only. Said to be an Amish variety valued for its ruggedness and heavy production. Thick compact plant great for a cut-and-come-again lettuce. Sharply triangukar green leaves with straight edges. Unique growth habit. Thin midrib, good texture. Pleasant sharp flavor. Looseleaf, 45-55 days.
